Consumer guides created just for you

With scientific insight from EWG experts, we developed the world’s first online database to score tens of thousands of personal care products for human health and safety. Since then, we’ve launched consumer guides that score cleaning products, food and drinking water and give advice on home products, all with the goal of empowering you to live a healthier life in a healthier environment.

Whether you’re interested in learning more about water safety in your zip code or toxic chemicals in your cleaning products, we’ve got you covered.
