Therese Forton-Barnes Healthy Home Coach and Advocate with Cancer Prevention in Mind

Therese "Tee" Forton-Barnes is a Healthy Home Advocate with Cancer Prevention in Mind and owner of The Green Living Gurus, LLC, podcast host at Green Living with Tee, and owner of Tee's Organics, a healthy for you and your home all-purpose cleaner and room sprays.

She will guide you on the road to avoid toxicants and chemicals that could cause cancer and other illnesses and lead you towards living a healthier, low-tox life. She will help you navigate the process of making healthier choices and inform you of alternative products and options that are not harmful to your health and the environment. She will help you decrease your exposure to chemicals, aim to reduce the risk of illnesses and increase your odds of a long, healthy, vital life.

She helps you reduce your exposure to toxicants and ease the overwhelm and nerves of chemical confusion. She guides you in creating a non-toxic home to reduce the risk of illnesses and toxic poisoning and increase the odds of a long, healthy, vital life and a safe environment for you and your family.

She does this through her weekly podcast show, newsletter, blog posts, social media, healthy home Coaching, and Tee's Organics, a line of healthy household cleaners and products for you and your home.

Therese lives in her beloved hometown of Buffalo, New York, with her husband, Tom, and Australian Labradoodle Murphy. After earning a degree from Ithaca College '85 with a major in Business and a minor in Health Studies, she had a business plan to open a health food store so everyone could have access to healthy eating and living, just like she had growing up. But out of college, she ended up on another path and founded Events 2 A Tee, an event planning business that has operated in the WNY area for over 38 years. But, for more than three decades, she has helped many people and cancer survivors learn how chemicals can affect their health. Her mother taught her everything about living a non-toxic life, but unfortunately, chemicals eventually took her mom's life after swimming in a chlorinated pool every day for over 50 years.

In 2020, Therese pivoted to her true passion: healthy, natural, non-toxic living. Therese brings over 40 years of hands-on, real-world experience living a holistic, non-toxic lifestyle. She is also furthering her education and training all the time.

In 2021, she started a new business called Tee's Organics. The product line consists of an all-purpose cleaning spray and three room sprays that are also good for linens, sneakers, hockey/athletic bags, cars, offices, lockers, and more. Her slogan is "Healthy for You and Your Home!" More products are in the works.

Besides living a healthy life, Therese loves to exercise, sip on organic wine, cook, walk her dog, go to the beach, listen to live music, hang with her husband and dog Murphy, attend  Buffalo Bills and Sabres games, and cruise in her 1971 Cutlass Supreme convertible. She also wears another 'hat' and started the Water Buffalo Club 716 – a group of thousands of fans who wear zany blue hats with white horns to Buffalo Bills football games.
