2. We encourage local families, businesses, and organizations to limit their exposure to and consumption of plastic and commonly used toxic chemicals to work toward a toxin-free future!


Take Action: Urge your Senators to cosponsor the Safe Chemicals Act.

You shouldn’t need a Ph.D. in chemistry to make safe purchases at the checkout counter.

But America’s toxic chemicals law is so badly broken that many common household products — from canned food to computers to carpeting — could expose you and your family to potentially dangerous toxic chemicals.

Now, there is an historic opportunity to change that. Senator Frank Lautenberg has introduced the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 that would be the first major overhaul of America’s dangerously weak toxic chemicals law, which hasn’t been amended since it was adopted 35 years ago

We need your help to make sure your Senators know that protecting American families from exposure to harmful chemicals is important to you!
