About Our Campaigns


BE SAFE promotes precautionary action to protect human health and prevent pollution. The precautionary approach shifts the questions we ask about environmental hazards from “what level of harm is acceptable?” to “how can we prevent harm?” BE SAFE works with hundreds of groups across the country to build a national precautionary movement through advocacy, educational events, organizing and technical support to groups working on local and state precautionary policies, and distributing cutting-edge resources, publications and model precautionary policies.

Working with groups across the country, CEHP educates and empowers communities to protect children from toxic exposures in the places where they play, pray, learn and grow. The campaign works on issues such as safe school siting, non-toxic pest management, least toxic cleaning products and procedures, indoor air quality, and more. The campaign educates communities on children’s special health vulnerabilities and brings together community leaders to collaborate on efforts prevent harm in their communities. The CEHP campaign created and houses the Green Flag Program for Environmental Leadership.

PVC: The Poison Plastic

CHEJ works with partners on a national campaign working to phase out PVC, the most dangerous plastic to our health and environment. In the past two years, we have successfully moved major Fortune 500 companies away from this unnecessary toxic plastic and towards safer and healthier alternatives. Microsoft, Johnson and Johnson, Wal-Mart, and Crabtree & Evelyn have all committed to phase out their use of PVC in packaging. We need your help to leverage these victories and win this campaign!
