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.
Under the seventh Environmental Action Plan (7th EAP), the European Commission is committed to the development of a Union’s strategy for a non-toxic environment by the end of 2018. According to the Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL), keeping that promise will be a game changer.
Following the publication of HEAL’s vision on Europe leading the way to a non-toxic environment, we wrote a letter to the European Commission outlying our vision for a European non-toxic environment strategy and a proposal for twelve priority actions.
A letter from the European Commission responding to this urge to action is available online.
