The Story of Cosmetics, from Annie Leonard + SafeCosmetics.org
How crazy is it that current FDA laws concerning personal care products haven’t changed since 1938? Apparently cosmetics companies aren’t required to meet any standards or regulations with their products. Crazy.
But there’s good news! Annie Leonard from The Story of Stuff has narrated this excellent video to educate us about what the heck we’re putting on our bodies, and on the very day it was released (July 22), the Safe Cosmetics Act of 2010 was introduced in Congress.
To take action and encourage your representatives to support the act, visit SafeCosmetics.org.
Token quote from the 8-minute video: ”Even babies are being born pre-polluted.” Blarg.
