Reduce endocrine disruptors in our life...

Tips for Reducing Your Exposure to Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals ▢  



  • Refuse single-use plastic. Prioritize reusable items and non-plastic options.

  • Ditch plastic products. Find glass and stainless steel alternatives.

  • Keep it natural. Search for more natural personal care products, cosmetics, household goods, clothing etc.

  • Less is more. Simplify and streamline – ask yourself if you really need to use a particular product. A good way to simplify is to use products that have multiple uses (e.g. multipurpose household cleaners).

  • Cook at home. Prepare simple, fresh, whole foods, which can save you money and help you avoid excess exposure to EDCs.

  • Go organic wherever possible. Buy organic if you can. And where you can’t, prioritize buying organic for the most heavily sprayed foods such as dark leafy greens (spinach, kale, etc.), strawberries, grapes, and apples. Peel fruits and veggies that aren’t organic.

  • Stick with what you know. Buy foods and personal care products with recognizable ingredients. While not all hard-to-pronounce ingredients are harmful, this rule of thumb can help you spot safer alternatives.

  • Repurpose items you already have on hand instead of buying new.
