WECF: Information guide on EDCs

The recently produced information brochure Stop EDC by Women in Europe for a Common Future (WECF) informs citizens on how you can avoid exposure to EDCs in your daily life.

Currently, there are more than 200 different known EDCs including chemicals such as BPA, Parabens and Phthalates. They are found in many products of daily life or as food contaminants and therefore they are able to enter the human body.

An informed decision to consciously buy products can reduce the exposure to EDCs. Based on selected group-types of products, this guide can show where EDCs are hiding and how they can be avoided. The production of this brochure was financially supported by the German ministry for environment
