“The Green New Deal”

February, 2019

“The Green New Deal,” as proposed by freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is currently on the table in the Senate, for senators to discuss. We’re going to be hearing a lot about this, including much idealism and much negativity and downright lies. Best to think for yourself.

How To Pick Safer Products

  • Look for the EWG VERIFIED mark

  • Use EWG’s database to find better options

  • Read ingredients and choose wisely

  • Claims like “gentle” and “natural” could be hype.

EWG.org, website of the Environmental Working Group, is my go-to source for information on personal and household products. EWG scientists have studied over 80,000+ products and rated them 1 through 10, with information on ingredients and risks. It’s the best source I’ve found.
