We work for you, and we’re not going anywhere
Picture putting sunscreen on your skin, knowing it has toxic chemicals in it. Envision biting into a carrot, knowing it’s tainted with pesticides. Imagine drinking a cup of water, knowing it’s contaminated by pollutants from local farms and factories.
This is the world we live in. But we deserve better.
Since 1993, the Environmental Working Group has shined a spotlight on outdated legislation, harmful agricultural practices and industry loopholes that pose a risk to our health and the health of our environment.
Whether it’s on Capitol Hill or in communities across America, we make our voices heard, changing the debate over environmental health and putting the most important people – you and your family – at the center of the conversation.
At EWG, we’re immersed in the most pressing challenges of our time. The air we breathe, the food we eat, the products we put on our skin – these essentials are in danger. We're doing everything we can to protect your health and our shared environment.
EWG’s team of scientists, policy experts, lawyers and communications and data experts work tirelessly to reform our nation’s broken chemical safety and agricultural laws. We push industries to adopt our standards and stand against chemicals of concern. We educate consumers with actionable information and inspire demand for safer products.
When government and industry won’t stand up for our public health, we’re there.
