New Video Out from Story of Stuff

Overbrook grantee The Story of Stuff project released its newest video yesterday, The Story of Cosmetics (storyofcosmetics.org).

Read the promo from The Story of Stuff web site here:

Check out storyofcosmetics.org on July 21 to see our latest film about how major loopholes in U.S. federal law allow the $50 billion beauty industry to put unlimited amounts of chemicals into personal care products with no required testing, no monitoring of health effects and inadequate labeling requirements—making cosmetics among the least-regulated consumer products on the market. Think twice before putting on that lipstick, you might be putting on lead!

Congratulations to Annie Leonard and her team! Click here for a recent profile on Leonard in the LA Times.
