ARE YOU A10?
WAIT, WHAT'S A10?
Anyone who is A10 has had this realization:
You’re in the store, stressing about buying the right “good-for-you” product, so you read the ingredients, Google the ingredients …
It’s natural. Check.
It’s organic. Check.
It’s cruelty-free. That has to give me some brownie points. Check. Check.
You leave the store, product in bag (can’t wait to use the product, but hate the price tag), pop in your ear buds and hear on a podcast that, ‘holy smokes, SNAP doesn’t cover these products for other people?’ Hold up. And then you do something about it. That’s why you’re here on this page. Hi, by the way, thanks for being here.
Your $10/month ensures a Portland family has basic self-care products yearly that are clean and free from harmful chemicals.
While you’re here, check out the Environmental Working Group’s Guide to safer personal care products:
It’s become a lifeline for me.
Oh and I try to think before I apply, spray or rub — it’s my skin. Why risk it?
HOW does becoming A10 keep others HEALTHY?
Turns out, nearly 17% of households in the Portland area are eligible for SNAP; ranked third highest among the nation’s 25 metropolitan areas.
Fortunately, government programs do help. There was an average decline from 2000 to 2009 in the prevalence of poverty due to SNAP. SNAP offers nutrition assistance to millions of low-income/wage-worker individuals and families and supports local communities.
But what about the preventative and self-care products to help keep you healthy? Households are unable to use SNAP to purchase items that have a direct impact on keeping their families and communities healthy, including vitamins and medicines, any non-food item.
A10 works with Portland families to ensure they receive three good-for-you-products each month. Toothpaste, sunscreen, soap or deodorant. All with clean ingredients.
What do YOU GET?
To tell everyone you’re A10.
A clean conscience.
