So you’ve read a bit about endocrine disruptors, but you still don’t know what all the fuss is about? You’re out shopping and forget what the codes mean on the bottom of those plastic bottles? Wish you could make a scenic road trip without driving through fracking communities?
A new app for your mobile device aims to solve these challenges and more for on-the-go parents!
Toxic Baby utilizes cool graphics and technology to help parents navigate a world full of potential health hazards for babies and families, all with the touch of a button or swipe of a screen.
Former BBC filmmaker Penelope Jagessar Chaffer produced and directed the Toxic Baby Movie, which is the central focus of the app and loaded with useful information. Around the movie content, she built access to current information about an encyclopedia of toxics parents are concerned about these days.
The visual quality is fun and convenient, fitting for a generation of parents who grew up on video games! The maps feature promises to be the most innovative detail, patching together real world locations with what families need to know.
We were proud to have Toxic Baby sponsoring a #CleanWater Twitter party in support of #MizzouFrackingResearch. The latest data from this sort of research is exactly what Toxic Baby hopes to incorporate into its app that can be updated as science reveals new discoveries.
You can read more about Jagessar Chaffer’s motivation for the Toxic Baby App at this post at Women’s Voices for the Earth, where she’s being honored as April’s Inspirational Woman.
