Pregnancy Awareness Month® believes that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) is making a difference in the world. We rely on their research for so many of the decisions we make as mom’s everyday to stay healthy and to choose purchases for our children. And during the holidays is another great time to utilize this research before you purchase that great gift for someone special.
Among the many things they provide is our personal favorite, their Skin Deep database. It works like a skin product search engine. You can go on their site, and type in your favorite skincare product, or one you are considering for your baby, and it will rank the product according to toxic and/or questionable ingredients. We find it helpful since packaging on products don’t always inform you of such things, and let’s face it, who can pronounce most of the ingredients on the back of the bottles?
They have created similar internal database search listings for sunscreen and household chemicals. What a resource!
This year for the holidays they have created a wonderful gift basket. Using their cutting-edge research, they’ve handpicked great new products that will help you eat healthier, waste less, and shop smarter. You can buy a thoughtful gift basked for your friends and family while making a tax- deductible purchase simultaneously. Sounds good to us! Supplies are limited – don’t delay!
With your gift of $150, you’ll get EWG’s 2012 Holiday Gift Box, which includes:
Consider this gift bag over the mail order tins of cookies or fudge.
Enjoy the season!
