Education is at the core of our social mission. Wherever you are on the learning curve of environmental health awareness, the opportunity to gain new insights is endless. Following is a list of resources we have found particularly helpful and inspiring:
Videos You Need to See
The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the Story of Stuff Project teamed up to create "The Story of Cosmetics," an excellent short video on the safety of skin care and beauty products and what we can do to change a broken system.
Healthy Child Healthy World’s “A Wake Up Story” is must-see short video for anyone who cares about the health and development of children.
Tools and Tips
Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep Database provides practical solutions to protect yourself and your family from everyday exposure to chemicals in cosmetics. Use the database to search for safer skin care, makeup, shampoos, sunscreens, and men’s and children’s products or to learn more about specific chemicals.
Healthy Child Healthy World offers parents and caregivers information and easy steps to reduce exposure to toxic chemicals in every room in your home, from the nursery, to the kitchen. Check out Healthy Child’s Easy Steps Resource Center, including the e-book “Healthy Nursery Toolkit.”
