Teens For Safe Cosmetics, as the campaign was originally called, launched in January of 2005. Teens Turning Green (TTG) is a student led global movement devoted to education and advocacy around environmental sustainability, personal health, and socially responsible choices for individuals, schools, and communities. Through student-led education, awareness-raising, and advocacy,
TTG works to empower and engage youth on high school and college campuses to become informed, active, and mobilized citizens. Our goal is to transition the way they live their lives from conventional to conscious.
Our programs focus on relevant themes that resonate in daily life, on school campuses, and in local communities. These programs create awareness around the impact of actions, inspire change in habits, and mobilize youth around the implementation of healthy, sustainable, and just practices. We develop strong platforms and projects, events and initiatives, and engage students globally, to be the change.
