David Suzuki’s Dirty Dozen

The David Suzuki Foundation is trying to raise awareness of harmful toxins found in many personal care products like shampoo, face wash, toothpaste, and perfume. These toxins, called the Dirty Dozen, are labeled but we still don’t know what they mean or how the can affect us.
For class, I created an informational booklet targeted towards moms. It explains some Dirty Dozen chemicals found in children’s bath products and gives especially harmful brands to avoid. Also, it lets moms know how the government does not have health standards for the Dirty Dozen chemical ingredients, nor regulations to disclose their damaging effects on people. There is a petition the reader can sign and send in to help put a stop to this. If you’re interested in learning more or signing a petition, go to

My project’s below. The illustrations are paper-cut which was a little time-consuming but I like the result!

The list goes on…
