In 2002 it was revealed that Marin County breast cancer rates had risenan alarming 60% in eight years. When asked what was being done, theresponse was there wasnt enough funding to do the necessary studies.Shortly thereafter, Judi Shils formed the Marin Cancer Project(currently known as Search for the Cause) to explore potential causes, seek answers and work to eliminate them.Knowing that environmental toxins are one of the leading causes ofdisease, cancer, birth defects, asthma, and reproductive harm, sherealized that education was the key to help inform citizens how toreduce exposure in their own lives. She also had the wisdom to knowthat if we rally together for change, change is possible.
Inspired by a group of teens who wanted to examine the toxic exposuresin their lives that might potentially contribute to cancer and otherhealth related concerns, Teens for Safe Cofmetics branched out as a program of Search for the Cause. The teens beganorganizing; growing in sheer numbers around this issue, they havebecome a powerful force for change. The campaign expanded from coast tocoast and now new chapters are springing up rapidly. Through educatingtheir peers and the greater community they have made a difference inmany peoples lives and have been instrumental in influencing chemicalpolicy change.
Teen campaign members became deeply interested in exploring otheraspects of their life where they were exposed to environmental toxins.They looked at fashion, their homes and their schools and wanted tounderstand what alternatives were available. They held Turning Greenevents that featured panel discussions, lifestyle shows andsustainability programs. Teens for Healthy Schoolswas launched in the Spring of 2008 as another program of Search for theCause, harnessing the inquisitive nature of teens to investigate theirschools and find the greener alternatives available to replace toxicproducts and practices. More and more schools are signing up to jointhis force for change.
The Teens Turning Green Concept is a natural transition for thecampaign, encompassing all aspects of the teen initiatives under oneumbrella. Not only focusing on cosmetics and personal care products, itbroadens the scope to all areas of life that potentially exposes oneto harmful chemicals. To help drive the message of Turning Green, thenew Teen Turning Green Collectionprovides a powerful way to educate the mass market by having a brandthat is easily distinguishable to teens and exemplifies products thatare healthy, safe, and effective (and even recommended by their peers!)
We hope that no matter where your interests lie, you can join our campaign and begin your journey to Turning Green.

Tezozomoc fue criado en Los Ángeles. Recibio su título universitario en Ingenería Electronica de California State University Northridge (CSUN) y término la mayor parte del Máster en Lingüística en CSUN. En 2003, Tezozomoc fue elegido a representar los Granjeros del Sur Centro de Los Ángeles en su lucha a preservar la finca urbana mas grande de los Estados Unidos. Su padre, uno de los organizadores originales, se enfermo y Tezozomoc se dedico a mantener el espacio en la finca urbana de su padre.
Desde 2003 hasta 2006, Tezozomoc conjunto con los otros granjeros urbanos, lucho a salvar este oasis urbano. En 2006, los granjeros pudieron recorir $16.3 million en unas semanas para comprar la tierra pero el promotor inmobiliario rechazo el negocio y la granja del Sur Centro de Los Ángeles fue destruido. Esta lucha fue documentada por Scott Hamilton-Kennedy en el documental El Jardín, nomiado por un Oscar en 2009.
Desde la destrucción de la Granja del Sur Centro de Los Ángeles en 2006, Tezozomoc y muchos granjeros de la comunidad han continuado su labor para mantener accessible productos organicos sembrados localmente para todas las personas a traves de la formación del Corporativo de los Granjeros del Sur Centro de Los Ángeles y el fondo de Salud y Educación de los Granjeros del Sur Centro de Los Ángeles. Ambas organizaciónes tambien trabjan localmente en problemas globales tal como el hambre, la malnutrición, accesso a comida, bajo empleado y la agricultura no sostenible.
Tezozomoc was raised in Los Angeles, received his degree in Electrical Engineering from California State University Northridge (CSUN) and completed a majority of the Master’s program in Linguistics at CSUN. In 2003, Tezozomoc was elected to represent the South Central Farmers in their three-year struggle to preserve the largest urban farm in the United States. His father, one of the original organizers had grown ill and Tezozomoc committed to taking care of his father’s plot. From 2003 to 2006, Tezozomoc, alongside the community of urban farmers, fought to save this urban oasis. In 2006, the farmers were able to raise $16.3 million in a matter of weeks to buy the land, however the developer backed out of the deal and the South Central Farm was bulldozed. This struggle was documented by Scott Hamilton-Kennedy in his 2009 Academy Award nominated documentary, The Garden. Since the 2006 destruction of the South Central Farm, Tezozomoc and several of the community farmers have continued their work to keep locally grown organic produce accessible to all persons through the formation of the South Central Farmers’ Cooperative and the South Central Farmers’ Health and Education Fund. Both these entities work locally to address the larger global problems of hunger, malnutrition, food access, unemployment and unsustainable agricultural practices.
