October 2011 – March 2015

EU LIFE+ programme


The aim was to campaign for every consumer to be able to make an informed and better choice about everyday-products. We selected very widely used everyday products such as cosmetics, baby care products, toys, household chemicals, construction materials and car care products and explained which hazardous substances could be contained in them, what could be their effects and how they could be avoided. This should support awareness raising on the issue of hazardous substances, training on making informed choices and motivate all users of this information to increase pressure on the manufactures of these products.
