One of my most prized sources of information about all sorts of things regarding healthy and green-living… health & toxins, home, farming, natural resources, energy choices, health tips, skin care, child safety… the list goes on.
The Environmental Working Group is a non-profit, non-partisan research organization dedicated to using the power of information to protect human health and the environment.
The Environmental Working Group is an amazing resource with great health information using valid research to back up their claims. They work hard to make sure you have all the information you need about the products you are using everyday. If you haven’t already check out the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Website, it’s a database of most skin care products, their safety, ingredients & possible toxicity… it’s pretty eye-opening! (You can also check out my blog post on “Living Organically“). In addition they have a Shoppers’ Guide to Pesticides in Produce.
They also have an Enviroblog, which I have listed under ‘Blogs and Websites I love’ to the right. Check it out! If you are like me, you like to be “in the know” about products and how they affect us and right now the EWG is looking for donations of any amount (as low as $5) to keep up the good work!
I am a big fan of the organization and in the midst of the holiday season, I urge you to make informed decisions about the gifts you give and check out their sites!
