Do we deserve to know what levels of chemicals around us are safe?
The answer should be YES. But that knowledge is not always as available as it should be. As global awareness about toxic chemicals found in products we use daily grows, consumers have the right to know what levels are safe to our health and to our environment. Above all, with global increases in child illnesses and developmental disorders, parents are more concerned than ever about what their children eat and put on their skin and about the material contents of their toys, school supplies and clothes.
Unacceptable Levels is the story of one man’s quest to find out what’s behind the pretty product labels and cheerful marketing. On his journey, filmmaker/narrator Ed Brown interviews scientists, health experts and advocates, delves into the history of organic chemistry and searches for what lies behind testing to identify the use of toxic chemicals around us. His inexhaustible search for this knowledge took three years and resulted in this comprehensive–and potentially impactful–documentary film.
The film will be available for viewing after an online premiere in September. See the trailer below:
Living Green with Baby will follow with a Q & A with the filmmaker, published in both English and Spanish.
