Do you know what’s in your makeup and personal care products?
You may have heard of Annie Leonard’s The Story of Stuff, a 20-minute video about consumerism in American society that explores the hidden environmental and social consequences our love affair with its stuff.

Now Annie Leonard brings us The Story of Cosmetics. It’s a quick watch and a great introduction to learning about the potentially harmful effects of personal care products. I think it’s especially important for engaged women and newlyweds to be aware of these issues, as we prepare to have our own families and make choices about the products they use. Watch the video below, and check out SafeCosmetics.org to educate yourself about how to make healthier choices.
