"Breast Cancer and Safe Cosmetics"
Wednesday, January 31, 2007
5:00PM – 8:00PM
Lindsay Wildlife Museum http://www.wildlife-museum.org/

The Bay Area Women's Environmental Network invites you to join Sonya Lunder of the Environmental Working Group (http://www.ewg.org/) for a conversation about the links between cosmetics and cancer. Major loopholes in federal law allow the $35 billion cosmetics industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required pre-market testing, no monitoring of health effects, and inadequate labeling requirements. Chemicals linked to cancer and birth defects don’t belong in health and beauty products. Come learn more about the harmful chemicals in cosmetics and personal care products and the steps we can take--from the personal to the political--to remove them.

5:00 - 6:00: The Lindsay Wildlife Museum will be open for WEN supporters. Come early and explore the museum for free!
6:00 - 6:30: Wine & sushi reception
6:30 - 7:30: Program
7:30 - 8:00: Closing reception

Space is limited! Purchase tickets for $10.00 online at http://wenspeakerseriesjan07.eventbrite.com/.
(Or buy tickets at the door if the event is not sold out.)
