From the National Council of Churches’ Eco-Justice Program (http://www.nccecojustice.org):
Most of us wake up and lather up with soap in the shower, shave, style our hair, and apply sunscreen or makeup before leaving the house in the morning. We assume all of these products have been tested for safety but this is not the case. Many products contain chemicals of concern that are linked to health concerns like cancer and reproductive harm. Join the author of Not Just a Pretty Face: The Ugly Side of the Beauty Industry, Stacy Malkan, and NCC Environmental Health Program Manager, Chloe Schwabe. on October 8th at 8pm EST to learn more about just what is going on inside our bodies, why this is an issue of faith, and what we can do to ensure these products are safe for everyone.
