As we celebrate the holidays, we give thanks for all that you have helped us achieve in protecting children's health. Below are a few highlights from 2015:



  • We reached new milestones in children’s health research:
    • Published two research studies this year in peer-reviewed journals
    • Completed a pediatric study on endocrine disruptors in children
    • Launched a maternal fetal medicine study exploring environmental exposures in pregnant mothers and newborns
    • Formed research collaborations with scientists at Rutgers University and Georgetown University to study environmental factors and cancer
  • We welcome contributions to our nonprofit research fund and thank all of you in advance for making this possible
  • Launched our new website, featuring user-friendly navigation, social sharing features and all the information you need about our Greening The Cleaning® institutional products and how to implement them at your place of business. 

We hope you stay tuned in 2016 for all that we will discover together.

Wishing you Happy, Healthy Holidays,

Deirdre Imus
