About Environmental Working Group
EWG on the News..
EWG's mission is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment. We're dedicated to helping you find the safest, best products out there. We believe you deserve to have access to healthy food and safe water. We work to shape policy and strengthen regulations so that one day, you won't even need our tools over there in the left sidebar.
In the meanwhile, we work with supporters like you to:
Make your every day products safe
Did you know that the FDA does not require ingredients to be tested before companies put them in your shampoo, toothpaste, lipstick, and lotion? Check your personal care products at Skin Deep, our cosmetics safety database.
Keep drinking water clean, safe, and affordable
Our Tap Water Database tells you exactly what you're drinking. The best solution isn't bottled water -- use a filter pitcher at home and help us keep our water sources clean.
Make organic food cheaper and more readily available
Organic food can be expensive, so why not prioritize? Our Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce tells you which high-pesticide fruits and veggies you should buy organic, and which you can buy conventional.
Protect national parks from mining destruction
The south rim of the Grand Canyon is currently threatened by 39 uranium mining claims, and toxic runoff from the oil and gas industry puts the groundwater and wildlife of the American west at risk. Use EWG's U.S. mining database to see what parks and natural treasures are in danger.
