The toiletries and cosmetics in your bathroom is a toxic pit!

30 10 2010

Annie Leonard –

Thanks to you over 200,000 people have seen The Story of Cosmetics and thousands more have joined the fight to make personal care products safe and healthy for everyone by contacting their Representatives about the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010.

There has been an outpouring of support for film since the release -from cancer survivors and salon workers who’ve been harmed by chemical exposures on the job to green business owners grateful for raising the debate about toxic chemicals in the stuff we rub on our bodies every day, to parents and many others glad to have a tool to help explain their concerns to neighbors and friends. 

Today, Annie and Stacy Malkan from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics have a blog up on Huffington Post explaining why they made The Story of Cosmetics and why chemical policy reform is urgently needed.

You can spread the word by checking out the blog post, offering a comment in support and posting a link to Huffington Post or The Story of Cosmetics site on your Facebook or Twitter.

 If you haven’t seen the film yet, today ought to be the day. Please take a few minutes and watch The Story of Cosmetics and then take action to support the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010.

Thanks again for helping spread the word and proving once again just how awesome this community is!
