Chemerical documents a family of five's challenge to transition from conventional cleaning, cosmetic, and body care product junkies to label-scrutinizing, DIYers. It's sort of like a non-toxic Supersize Me.
This is a great film to share with loved ones who think you're extreme for caring about this sort of thing. The film keeps things educational, light, and mostly positive- focusing on the power individuals and families have to create a safer, healthier home. I imagine it could be the gentle, but eye-opening, push many might need to go green for 2013.
