My kids learned a lot and had a great time. Read More

The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,300 ingredients and the US has only banned 11 to date. Decades of studies indicate that health issues (such as asthma, learning disabilities, cancer and infertility) are on the rise due in some part to our exposure to toxic chemicals.
