Dr. Ben and the rest of the staff at StainlessWaterBottles.com (SWB) are committed to supporting the non-profit organization, the Environmental Working Group (EWG). To show our appreciation and support, StainlessWaterBottles.com has donated $1, 000 to help kick off the launch of the Stainless Water Bottles website. We will also be donating 2% of all SWB sales directly to the EWG along with an additional $150 each month.
StainlessWaterBottles.com will feature a counter shown on the website with the current, year-to-date amount of money that has been donated to the Environmental Working Group. With each SWB order, the counter will show the difference. If an item is returned it will not be subtracted from the amount shown.
StainlessWaterBottles.com will also feature special days where we will offer a much higher percentage of each order donated to the EWG. You can receive information for these special days in the future via SWB’s Twitter and Facebook updates, or right here, at StainlessWaterBottles.org!
In response to SWB’s promise and dedication, EWG president Ken Cook wrote,
“…I wanted to write a quick note in gratitude for your support of EWG at year’s end. We need friends like you more than ever now, with so many research and policy opportunities, and so much financial pressure due to the recession. We’ll make the very most of your generous donation. Thank you, again.”
SWB looks forward to helping the EWG in any way we can, and we hope that you will be happy to know that by purchasing safe and healthy stainless steel water bottles and kitchenware from SWB, that you are helping too. The EWG is very important and useful to the public for their research in helping us live long, safe, and healthy lives.
What is the Environmental Working Group?
Founded in 1993 by Ken Cook and Richard Wiles, the EWG’s mission is to “use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment.”
In 2002, EWG as well formed the EWG Action Fund, a non-profit organization that advocates for the public on Capitol Hill for health-protective and subsidy-shifting policies.
The EWG’s Goals are to:
- Protect the most vulnerable segments of the human population—children, babies, and infants in the womb—from health problems attributed to a wide array of toxic contaminants.
- Replace federal policies, including government subsidies that damage the environment and natural resources, with policies that invest in conservation and sustainable development.
In terms of how EWG accomplishes these goals, they state on their website,
“Our research brings to light unsettling facts that you have a right to know. It shames and shakes up polluters and their lobbyists. It rattles politicians and shapes policy. It persuades bureaucracies to rethink science and strengthen regulation. It provides practical information you can use to protect your family and community.
And because our investigations and interactive websites tend to make news, you’ve probably heard about them. Even if you’ve never heard of us. Which is fine. We’d rather you remember our work than our name.”
Areas That the EWG Specializes in:
You might remember our recent post on BPA and its harmful effects. We honestly could not have presented as good of research had it not been for the EWG. More information regarding BPA in baby bottles can be found on the EWG website in their eight page Guide to Infant Formula and Baby Bottles: Guide to Baby-Safe Bottles & Formula.
The EWG website also includes important information on everyday healthy living topics such as:
- The Sunscreen Safety Guide
- The Shoppers Guide to Pesticides in Produce
- Everyday Pollution Solutions
- The Cosmetic Safety Database
- The Cell Phone Radiation Report
- The EWG National Drinking Water Database
- Cleaning Supplies That Contaminate Classroom Air
- The Guide to Kids’ Personal Care Products
- Healthy Pet Tips
- Healthy Home Tips
As you can see, the EWG is a very important resource for the public on finding valuable information pertaining to health issues that effect each and every one of us on a daily basis. The EWG is committed to making our lives easier by investigating, researching, and testing all of their theories so that we, in return, can live safer and healthier lives.
