Women's Voices for the Earth is an amazing organization! They are beyond great! I have been following their work, participating in their campaigns and sending my support for several years now. From exposés on cleaning products to make-up to food can linings -- Women's Voices for the Earth is out to educate for the greater good. Their impact has been substantial -- campaign after campaign -- causing proposals for new laws (The Safe Chemical Act) as well as the establishment of grass roots groups to challenge the status quo (The Stroller Brigade, Cleaning Parties, etc.). I believe my initial contact with WVE concerned toxins in make-up and grooming supplies -- a topic I never thought much about but have since become an incredible advocate for and I am spreading the word! Thanks to WVE, I now check the toxin levels of every product that touches my body and hope we can all do the same for ourselves, our children, our grandchildren, and great-grandchildren too!

As a founder of Seventh Generation, a company of environmental household cleaning products and personal care products and a donor to WVE, I have shared the mission of WVE in eliminating toxic chemicals from the products that come in contact with us and our families and increase the risk of cancers . Through their tireless efforts, WVE has been able to educate thousands of women on the toxic chemicals lurking in their homes and on the shelf.

Women's Voices for the Earth truly gives a much need voice to issues facing women, children and families today. We have all benefited from the strong, credible research that has come from WVE. I look to WVE for information on safe cosmetics and cleaning products to buy, and I share this information as often as I can. Thank you and please keep it up to all of the hard working people at Women's Voices for the Earth!!!

Just 4-1/2 staff members at WVE work themselves hard to create awareness and work for change. I couldn't believe my eyes the first time I entered their office and saw so few women - "Where is everyone else?!" I asked in shock. These women are creating change on a national level, and their work is reaching into other countries, as well. I carry their list of toxins with me wherever I go in order to buy the safest products, and I write to the companies they research in order to foster change. Their research is extensive, and their hard work benefits us all. Amazing! They deserve every possible accolade! I wish that more people knew how much this organization needs their donation - this is such a great cause and donation dollars are wisely used. I am so proud of the efforts of Women's Voices for the Earth!! ~ Debra

I never considered the contents of the products I used until I started having severe reactions to some of the cleaning products I was using. Women's Voices for the Earth was an amazing resource to help me navigate my way to using better products and obtaining better health. I thought that perfume free meant chemical free when it came to laundry detergent. WVftE uncovered the hidden truth about these products that I was spending so much money on. Now I make my own detergent and cleaners for a fraction of the cost, and feel safe knowing that they are safe to use in my home. I love showing my kids how to make our own cleaning products from safe ingredients and passing this info. on to instill in them how important it is to avoid having toxic chemicals in the home.

I'm a new mom and recently attended one of WVE's Green Momma parties. I learned so much about safe products for my little guy. The information was presented in a very practical and easy-to-understand manner and I left the party excited to try some environmentally-friendly methods for my home. I like that they offer both small and big changes so you could pick whatever seems best for your household. I recommend WVE's information to every parent I know.

Women's Voices for the Earth has been one of the most influential organizations in the field of environmental health for the last decade and they are unique in a couple of ways: 1. they emphasize the support and empowerment of women and 2. they provide realistic, attainable solutions that anyone can carry out, regardless of their economic or social status. The work they've done has resulted in fewer people exposed to toxic chemicals prevalent in everyday consumer products, and more women educated about how their consumer choices and activism can improve the health of their families and communities. Plus, they're some of the nicest women you've ever met.

As a new mom, I look to WVE to help inform my decisions about what products to buy that will be safe for my baby. I recently went to a green mamas party, hosted by WVE, and learned so much - including how to make my own non-toxic diaper wipes and what harmful chemicals to look for on ingediant lists. I am so grateful to WVE!

WVE helps me make decisions that keep me and my family safe. Now I know what kind of non-toxic sunscreen, makeup, and household cleaners to buy! I rely on them to provide clear, cutting-edge information on products that are safe for me, and for women everywhere. Thanks, WVE!
