WECF presents animation film for pregnant women on how to protect children from EDCs

Pregnant women know it is important to avoid alcohol, nicotine and certain foods. However, what is less well known is that many everyday products contain pollutants that can also be harmful to your baby. WECF’s film gives practical advice on how to avoid exposure to EDCs.

You are pregnant and looking forward to meeting your child! You want to make sure you do everything possible to give your child a great start in life. You know that it is important to avoid alcohol, nicotine and certain foods. However, what is less well known is that many everyday products contain pollutants that can also be harmful to your baby. The film below, produced by WECF, provides information on how you can protect yourself and your child from Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs).
 
More information on this topic can also be found on www.projectnesting.org and on the free app “giftfrei einkaufen” (in German), also produced by WECF.
 
Consuming and living consciously can make your happier, is generally not more expensive and most importantly, it helps your baby have a healthy start in life.

This film was financially supported by EEHI Environment and Health Initiative and by EU Life+ ChildProtect.
