Amy Brenneman

Actress, Activist and Mother of Charlotte and Bodhi

"I became involved with Healthy Child Healthy World because of my dad’s work (he's part of something called Environment and Human Health out of Yale University) and because, of course, I became a mom myself. We started cleaning with Method products, we stopped chemical pest and weed control, we started eating more organic. The first day our pest guy came and used organic methods was so moving to me. I expected to have to clear out of my office for the requisite four hours, but he, maskless, said, no. That wasn’t necessary since no harsh chemicals were being used. A light bulb went on. “Oh my god,” I said. “This is so much better for you guys, too!” He beamed. Of course: Imagine being around that stuff all day?"
