Lead in lipstick. Carcinogens in baby shampoo. Toxic flame retardants in furniture. Who’s minding the store? Sadly, no one.
We believe firmly that we must legislate, not buy our way out of exposure to toxic chemicals. However, in cases where safer alternatives do exist, it’s a matter of justice that they be available everywhere, for everyone. When toxic is the only choice? We must raise our voices and demand tougher laws to protect our health.
Look for tips on how to avoid exposures in consumer products and what you can do to help pass chemical legislation. Be sure to visit the Partners directory for groups working on the safety of consumer products in your community and support their efforts.
