“The GreenScreen Practitioner Program offers a much deeper, detailed insight into the GreenScreen method than can be obtained through the Standard Introductory Course. The quality of data obtained, research, and classification are greatly enhanced by participating in the program.”

               - Leah Boyd, Anchor Glass

“GreenScreen is an elegant system, and it is one bright light in the sea of misinformation and confusion.  I think people who have trained in the Practitioner Program will be able to impress on others the need to be deliberate and thorough and serious about chemical hazard assessment to yield the transformation necessary.”
