Beth Conway is the Communications Director at Women’s Voices for the Earth. For over 20 years this women’s health non-profit has helped lead the fight to disclose and eliminate toxic ingredients in cleaning products, fragrance, salon products and feminine hygiene products. Women’s Voices for the Earth uses sound science to highlight the unique impacts toxic chemicals have on women’s health, and mobilizes women leaders nationwide to change corporate practices and government policies that impact their health. WVE’s campaigns have challenged – and moved – such chemical giants as SC Johnson and Son Inc., Procter and Gamble, The Clorox Company, RB (formerly Reckitt-Benckiser) and more.
Their work is frequently featured in major publications including The Guardian, Huffington Post, Mother Jones, Bustle, Washington Post, New York Times, and on influential blogs and game-changers in the non-toxic movement. In 2013, WVE launched their campaign for safe feminine care products (also known as “Detox the Box”) with the ground-breaking report, Chem Fatale, and has helped elevate the topic of period health into the public mainstream.
