Children’s health is at the center of all we do

Children’s health and well-being are the backbone of our work. When it comes to the impact of toxic chemicals, children aren’t just small adults –their developing bodies make them especially vulnerable.  

At EWG, we focus on what environmental research says about what’s safe for children and what’s not, including: 

- How your family can start eating heathier 

- Avoiding the impact of toxic chemicals  

- Choosing safer products for your kids
