Women as Agents for Social Change

Author: sheila.B

Women are the largest group of consumers, and can effect change through our purchasing habits. When we buy laundry detergent made without optical brighteners, or tampons made with 100% organic cotton, we are demanding change.

So is Women's Voices for the Earth, a group that is working to remove toxic chemicals from the products we consume. Founded in 1995 by a group of women advocates, WVE focuses its work on eliminating toxic pollution that may contribute to breast cancer, birth defects, asthma, infertility, learning disabilities, children's cancers, and other illnesses.

The group aims to eliminate sources of toxic chemicals from consumer products, homes, workplaces, and communities. Learn more and get involved with their work today at www.womensvoices.org.
