Celebrate California’s
leadership with us!

On Thursday, April 18, we’ll gather with EWG friends and family to TAKE ACTION in California on many legislative opportunities that protect our children, our planet and our health.

This year we're placing special emphasis on California and its leadership, which is paving the way for important progress in the fight to protect our health. Over the past 12 years, 25 EWG-sponsored laws protecting people and the environment have become law in California.

In 2023, EWG’s tireless advocacy efforts helped usher in vital California laws to protect children and consumers from exposure to harmful chemicals in food, cosmetics and mattresses.

For 2024, EWG has a vision for enacting even bigger changes and passing more laws that tackle harmful chemicals in California and across the U.S. – but we need your continued support and the support of a new generation of advocates.

We’d be honored to have you join us for an evening of impact that inspires and supports healthier people and a healthier planet in 2024 and beyond. Hope to see you there!

Doors Open @5:30pm | Program @7:00pm Tickets are available now!

California in action

In 2023, EWG achieved significant victories in California, resulting in three new laws aimed at reducing exposure to harmful chemicals. These include banning fiberglass in mattresses, prohibiting four chemicals in food, and restricting 26 toxic chemicals in cosmetics.

Banning fiberglass in mattresses

A new California law bans state-wide sale of mattresses and upholstered furniture that contain fiberglass, a harmful replacement fire retardant.

Banning chemicals in food

The California Food Safety Act, the first law in the U.S. to ban four harmful chemicals from candy, cereal, soda and other processed food sold and produced in the state.

Banning chemicals in cosmetics

California has banned 26 more toxic chemicals linked to health harms in cosmetics products.


A new generation of advocates

Empowering the future stewards of our environment, EWG collaborates with select high schools to nurture a new generation of advocates. Providing science-backed tools, we empower students to address pressing public and environmental health challenges.


EWG is proud to support the next generation of environmental champions and advocates with science-backed tools and resources to help tomorrow’s leaders create change on the pressing issues that affect our planet.
