“The mission of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment. ”
EWG is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that advocates on Capitol Hill for health-protective and subsidy-shifting policies. One of my main goals is to further public education about the toxins found in our everyday items and their effects on our bodies and lives. So many of our personal care products are full of dangerous chemicals and substances. The EWG has created resources like Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Database to help the public educate themselves about these important and urgent issues.
I encourage everyone to check out their websites and learn more about the safety of some of your favorite products.
