4 BIG Reasons to Download & Use The EWG Healthy Living App
If you don’t have it yet, then you are missing out! Prepare to have your conscious life made that much easier!
The EWG Healthy Living App is an app that allows you to scan a barcode of anything from food to skin care products to cleaning products and instantly find out it’s toxicity levels. With a database of over 200,000 food and cosmetic products, they are leading the industry in terms of resources and data to help parents like us make good, conscious, informed choices on what we are buying.
I have been in love with the EWG app since I first discovered it years ago. Like many, I really started paying attention to what I was eating when I became pregnant, at which time I did so much research. There was a vast amount of information out there, but the EWG’s simple rating system made sense to me and the app was so easy to use that it made my transition to a conscious lifestyle that much easier.
Who Are The EWG?
The EWG is The Environmental Working Group. The EWG is an American environmental organization that specializes in research and advocacy in the areas of toxic chemicals, agricultural subsidies, public lands and corporate accountability.
They are the good guys.
They have a simple 1-10 (10 being totally toxic) rating system that is easy to use. You scan a bar code and up pops the rating with an explanation. Their database is constantly growing. The only thing they don’t show is the amount of each ingredient in the product. This can matter because sometimes ingredients mix and cause toxic reactions, which may not be calculated for. However, their ratings are very accurate and if a product rates high, you should put it back!
