Our Purpose

Healthy Child Healthy World, Powered by Environmental Working Group, Empowers Parents To Take Action and Protect Children From Harmful Chemicals.

Healthy Child Healthy World (HCHW) merged with Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit research and advocacy organization in January 2014, bringing together HCHW’s powerful educational resources for parents with EWG’s groundbreaking research in environmental health. As a program of EWG, Healthy Child Healthy World creates targeted educational resources so parents and caregivers can make informed decisions to protect the health and development of our most precious resource—our children. Under EWG, the HCHW program will provide:

Practical, compelling, state-of-the-art guidance that continually empowers families to lead healthier lives in a healthier environment.

Information on consumer products that parents can rely on to materially reduce children’s exposures to potentially hazardous environmental chemicals and pollutants.

An accessible, inspirational and empowering gateway to advocacy, providing concerned parents with a powerful united voice that holds government and business accountable for clean, safe air, water, food and consumer products.
