Tickets are $11 and must be reserved in advance - this is grassroots crowdsourcing through the web platform). Credit cards will not be charged until a minimum number of seats have been reserved.

"Unacceptable Levels is a great documentary ... about the myriad ways we are being exposed to toxins, poisons and allergens in our daily life. It is sweet, funny, clear, and illuminating."
- Paul Hawken, founder of Smith & Hawken, environmentalist

"Although at points during "Unacceptable Levels" you might feel incredibly discouraged or even nauseous, Brown retains his open, honest demeanor–and it's calming. He doesn't freak out and tell us we're all doomed. He has hope, and he ends the film with a call to action that we can all respond to: Do something. Care about something. Investigate for yourself. Make a small change. Share what you've learned with a friend. Sign a petition or send a letter to a brand that you want to see change."
- Beth Buczynski, ecosalon

"From the products we use, to the food we eat, to the air we breathe, Unacceptable Levels documents how prevalent toxic chemicals have become part of our lives. Ed Brown uses the powerful connection of family to illustrate how broken our system has become, and why we must do something about it. Our children's futures depend on it."
– Gigi Lee Chang, CEO, Healthy Child Healthy World

"This excellent film brings home in a very real way the link between our environment and our health."
- Génon Jensen, Executive Director of HEAL (Health and Environment Alliance)
