How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Healthy Child Healthy World has worked alongside the media, government, scientists, and medical experts to play a crucial role in legislative reform and public education. In our early beginnings, our work resulted in the release of the first systematic analysis of children’s exposure to carcinogens in the home and school environments by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). The study led Senator Barbara Boxer to introduce the Children’s Environmental Protection Act in dedication to Colette Chuda. Several years later, our signature Easy Steps would help to create widespread awareness of the hidden chemicals in our homes, reaching 140 million people nationwide. Over our 22-year-history, Healthy Child Healthy World has also been influential in encouraging corporations to adopt safer formulations and sustainable policies, including Johnson & Johnson, Campbell’s Soup Company, and Procter & Gamble.
