On September 30, model, author, blogger, and mother-of-two, Chrissy Teigen, will launch the Cravings by Chrissy Teigen collection exclusively at Target.  The collection features all of Teigen’s essentials for prepping, cooking, and serving her favorite recipes, plus items like cutlery, glassware and pitchers that are perfect for entertaining in A-list style. The 40+ piece collection combines the model’s aesthetic with Target’s winning combination of design and value.  Prices will range from $4 for drinkware to $140 for a 12-piece cookware set.

“We have a great relationship with Chrissy and have worked with her in a number of ways over the years—from her first modeling job being in a Target catalog, to her starring in our 2016 holiday campaign. When we learned she was launching her own kitchen and tabletop line, we both knew it would be right at home at Target,” said Mark Tritton, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, Target. “We know our guests will be excited to see Chrissy branch out with the launch of her new collection, and we are thrilled to be the exclusive retailer for Cravings by Chrissy Teigen.”

Posting on Instagram, Teigen exclaimed, “I’M IN TARGET!!!! … I truly can’t believe any of this is happening and can’t wait for you all to see it.”  As to some of her must-haves from the collection, Teigen raves about the “Go To'” knife (her “everything”), the uber-chic organic plates and bowls, and of course, her latest cookbook, Cravings:  Hungry for More?

IS ATRAZINE IN YOUR WATER?

Atrazine is a weed-killer manufactured by agrochemical giant Syngenta. It is sprayed mostly on Midwest corn fields and is consistently one of the most-detected crop chemicals in drinking water.   According to the Environmental Working Group’s Tap Water Database, which aggregates testing data from utilities nationwide, in 2015, atrazine was found in water systems serving nearly 30 million Americans in 27 states.  Recent studies have shown that atrazine turns male frogs into females and may increase the risk of cancer and due to its ability to disturb the fine-tuned hormonal balance in the body, even at low doses, atrazine is believed to affect the reproductive system and the developing fetus.

The European Union has completely phased out atrazine because of its potential to contaminate drinking water.  However, according to a report in The New York Times, in a mid-July assessment of atrazine the Environmental Protection Agency reviewed and dismissed twelve recent epidemiological studies linking atrazine to childhood leukemia and Parkinson’s disease, and asserted that the chemical was “unlikely to cause cancer,” as published by its manufacturer, Syngenta.
