Cosmetics and personal care products can contain harmful endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and other substances of concern, but their labels can be hard to read. The infographic launched by the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) and Tegengif/Erase All Toxins today uncovers the story behind chemicals in cosmetics.
HEAL has submitted a response to the public consultation on the Sustainable Use of Pesticides (SUD) Directive as well as published a position on the topic.
The SUD revision is an opportunity for Europe to change its current agricultural model of conventional agriculture that has devastating impacts on human and environmental health. HEAL supports the gradual transition towards a pesticide-free agricultural model, where the methods used in pest-management do not jeopardise the health of farmers, residents of pesticide-treated areas or consumers and promote, rather than destroy, biodiversity.
