Safe Product Shopping Guide

Leave a comment

I’ve done lots of research to find safe products for our family. To minimize exposure to hormone disruptors and carcinogens, I steer clear of BPA, phthalates, lead, PVC and plastics to the best of my ability. My favorite web sites for researching and purchasing products include:

EWG
The Soft Landing
SafeMama
MightyNest
Healthy Stuff (especially the Car Seats guide)
I Read Labels For You
Consumer Lab (for supplement safety)
