Laura DernAmy Brenneman and Laura Dern want to create a healthier future for our children. That’s why they’ve gotten involved with the Children’s Health Environment Coalition (CHEC), a non-profit dedicated to educating the public about environmental toxins that can affect children’s health.

The program is called Blue Butterfly and it walks you through 5 easy steps to create a healthier home environment for children. They include avoiding the use of toxic pesticides and cleaners, eating organically, and being careful with plastics (staying away from vinyl).

I personally have an ant problem at the moment and am at my wit’s end on how to clear it up – the right way. Turns out these ladies are promoting a non-toxic (to humans and pets at least) pesticide, Battle Those Bugs. I’m thinking of trying it. The website is reminiscent of Begley’s Best, which I feel bad about saying that always cracks me up. Not the product, people seem to like it, just the whole Ed Begley on the package thing.
