5 New Year’s Resolutions for Healthier Living

Monday, January 4, 2021

Are you looking to make a clean start to 2021? If you’re ready to start living cleaner and healthier, EWG is here to help. Take a look at some of our top resolutions, with resources to help you stick with them.

1. Live Cleaner

Try avoiding questionable chemicals by using EWG’s Skin Deep®, Food Scores and Healthy Cleaners databases. Our scientists have analyzed thousands of ingredients to help you find safer products.

For quick access to all three databases on the go, download EWG’s Healthy Living app. Just scan a product, review the rating and pick the better choice.

2. Eat Better

Eating more fruits and vegetables is an easy way to improve your diet. But conventional produce can contain harmful pesticide residues. Use EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™ to help reduce your exposure to pesticides while eating fresh.

(Need some inspiration?) Donate $10 or more and we’ll send you a digital copy of “EWG Eats”. Our cookbook is chock-full with delicious and healthy recipes.

3. Cultivate a Healthier Home

We’ve all been spending lots of time at home this year. But indoor air is two to five times more polluted than the air outside. For tips on air purifiers and more, check out EWG’s Healthy Living Home Guide.

Want to make sure your home is as clean as it can be? Download a free copy of EWG’s Healthy Home Checklist for tips to make every room in your house safer and healthier.

4. Waste Less

Bottled water is wasteful and can contain harmful contaminants like atrazine. Try investing in a water filter instead. You can consult EWG’s Tap Water Database to find out which contaminants are in your tap water and then use EWG’s Water Filter Guide to find the right filter for you.

To take your filtered water on the go, check out EWG’s exclusive Klean Kanteen water bottle. You can get yours today with a donation of just $35 or more.

5. Raise Your Voice

If you’re looking to fight for your health and our environment, make sure you’re signed up for action alerts from EWG. We’ll keep you posted on urgent actions all year-round.

Right now, we need your help fighting to get cancer-linked glyphosate out of our food. EWG reports have revealed shockingly high levels of glyphosate in cereals and hummus. The Environmental Protection Agency is accepting comments on glyphosate until January 26 – will you add your name to EWG’s petition today?
