About us

EDC-Free Europe is a coalition of public interest groups representing more than 70 environmental, health, women’s and consumer groups across Europe who share a concern about hormone disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and their impact on our health and wildlife.

The campaign is also supported by over 11K individuals across 78 countries, communicating through seven major European languages.


Hormone disrupting chemicals, often known as endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), are chemicals that can interfere with natural hormones, the chemical messengers of our bodies.

Our aim is to raise awareness and urge faster governmental action on these chemicals that are toxic to our health. This will drive innovation for safer chemicals and products, which will in turn create a healthier future for all.
