Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Has Your Health Been Harmed by Toxic Chemicals? Share Your Story!

When you share your experiences, it not only changes people who connect with your story, it also changes you. When people share their personal stories on a social issue, they become more invested in that issue because it is now theirs (Beautiful Rising.org). What’s more, it is contagious: Sharing leads to sharing leads to sharing and helps communities and individuals connect over similarities and differences.

We want to hear from you! Tell us, how have exposures to harmful chemicals impacted your health?

And if you are interested, WVE can also help you amplify your story in the media, or with policy and decision makers.

Exposure to Fragrance

Thousands of synthetic chemicals are used to create modern day fragrances for our products, and some of these chemicals have been linked to health impacts ranging from eye and skin irritation to hormone imbalance and increased risk of breast cancer. Furthermore, these ingredients are kept secret – the vast majority of manufacturers currently are not disclosing fragrance ingredients on websites or on the product label.

There are many people whose health has been impacted by fragrance ingredients. Are you one of them?  Submit your story – click here.

Adverse Reactions to Wipes, Washes, Douches, Sprays, etc?

Makers of intimate care products often market their wipes, washes, and more as “must-haves” for both health and self-image. They capitalize on the blatant and absurd underlying message that vaginas are dirty and in need of cleansing. What’s worse: with names like “Island Splash” or “All-Day Fresh” these products may sound refreshing, but they can contain hidden toxics.

Harmed by Cleaning Products?

Certain chemicals in cleaning products have been linked to fertility problems, birth defects, increased risk of breast cancer, asthma and respiratory disorders, and hormone disruption. Women and men who clean for a living are disproportionately exposed to chemicals in cleaning products due to their use of these products day in and day out. Cleaning workers experience higher rates of certain illnesses, which may be due to exposure to chemicals in cleaning products on the job.

Manufacturers and decision-makers need to understand the personal impacts these products are having on the people who use them. SHARE now!
