Healthy Child Healthy World, a nonprofit organization devoted to protecting children from harmful chemicals, has partnered with companies LUNA and Kleen Kanteen to help educate families and develop community awareness of the harmful chemicals hidden in our everyday lives. For a tax-deductible donation of $20, every host will receive one complete Healthy Home Party Kit, which includes everything you'll need for your party--guides, fliers, brochures, a DVD to show, as well as several samples from many of their sponsors to share with your guests. It's that easy, and you can invite as few or as many people as you like!
For more information about hosting a party, or to find out more about reducing chemicals in your own homes, visit the Healthy Child website at http://www.healthychild.org/. They have some great resources, including:
- a list of the five basic products you need for green cleaning
- ideas for limiting your child's intake of food additives
- information about chemicals in care-products (lotions, shampoos, etc.) for babies and kids
- a "green" shopping guide
- an Action Kit developed by the real-life Erin Brockovich to help you take control and protect your children from exposure to toxic chemicals
