About Us

Know your environment. Protect your health. For 25 years, Environmental Working Group (EWG) has worked to protect people from toxic chemicals – in their homes, food, tap water and everyday household products.


We use unique expertise to gather and analyze mountains of data – on personal care products, household cleaners, processed foods, drinking water contaminants, agriculture damage – to expose risky practices, and products, confront manufactures and industries directly, and challenge the chemical status quo.


Our signature shopping guides and databases push companies to make cleaner, greener products and give consumers the information they need to make safer choices today.


Our teams in DC, San Francisco, Sacramento and Minneapolis go directly to lawmakers to educate them about these issues and push for the regulatory reforms we need.


In 2018, EWG published 27 major research reports: 144 EWG news’s and analysis posts, 49 AG Mag blog posts and 152 press releases and statements.  More than 26 million website  sessions; including 2.8 million visits to the Tab Water Database and 137.5 million Facebook impressions. Our work last year was mentioned over 14,000 times by print, online, TV and radio outlets.
