BENEFITING: Women's Voices for the Earth

EVENT DATE: May 22, 2014

THE STORY:

Toxic chemicals don’t belong in feminine products. Period.

… But unfortunately, there are chemicals hidden in feminine products linked to serious health issues. And companies don’t have to tell you about it.

To get this serious message to a whole lot of women, we’ve created Detox the Box, our latest (and greatest) spoof video, aimed at mobilizing women to take action to convince a very large corporation to take toxic chemicals out of their products.

Our goal is to raise $15,000 to fund the launch of this campaign and ensure that EVERY woman in America (and every guy, too!) sees this video. With your help, we can release a video that will knock your socks off—and scare the pants off of any corporation that thinks it can hide toxic chemicals in products that affect our most sensitive body parts.

The toxic chemicals in feminine products don’t stand a chance against our dance moves, creative costuming, and of course, sound science! And it’s just the beginning a multi-faceted strategy that includes national media and creative action to ensure we are heard. Invest in women’s health today by supporting Detox the Box! 

Detox the Box would not have been possible without incredible support from our community: a talented, professional team of videographers, choreographers, dancers, and musicians… and even a fancy pro bono advertising firm from L.A.! Please join this amazing team and cause, and donate to this campaign!
