The mission of the Environmental Working Group (EWG) is to use the power of public information to protect public health and the environment.
EWG's organizational goals are:
1. To protect the most vulnerable segments of the human population children, babies, and infants in the womb from health problems attributed to a wide array of toxic contaminants.
2. To replace federal policies, including government subsidies that damage the environment and natural resources, with policies that invest in conservation and sustainable development.
