Top 10 Reasons You Need to See the Movie STINK!

Why You Need to See the STINK movie

Have you heard of STINK! yet? It’s the movie the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see.

The Minneapolis premier of STINK! was last night and I had the honor of speaking on a panel afterwards. The viewing was sponsored by Beautycounter and hosted by Lindsay Dahl, their Director of Policy and Partnerships. Kathleen Schuler from Healthy Legacy was also on the panel. We talked about the work being done to update our sorely outdated chemicals laws (both at the federal and state levels) and what we can do to find safer products while we are waiting for better laws to be put in place.

STINK! is currently screening across the country and will be available in Video on Demand (VOD) platforms beginning February 16, 2016.
