Mission and Goals

CFP Save Our Water Initiative

IES CFP Save Our Water Initiative

CFP Project Team

To advance our mission, the Chemical Footprint Project Team works on several initiatives to reduce human exposure to Contaminants of Emerging Concern released from personal care and household products.  CFP Project Team members work on outreach, development and presentation of workshops for kids and adults, and research to stay current with the latest chemical footprint news.

The CFP Project Team seeks motivated, enthusiastic individuals to join our team as graduate interns or Institute Associates. CFP Project Volunteers and Graduate Interns participate in project design, project implementation, stakeholder meetings, community workshops, educational programs, and outreach. Institute Associates have a broad range of technical, economic, social and legal expertise that aide the CEC Team in carrying out our mission. If you are interested in joining the CFP Project Team as a Graduate Intern or Institute Associate, contact IES at
