National Chemicals Policy Advocacy
While leaders in industry can and must lead a transformation to a safer material economy, government policy change can make it easier, more efficient, and mandatory. That’s why we work for policy change to make doing the right thing easier and the wrong thing harder.
Led by Senators Frank Lautenberg and Kirsten Gillibrand, 29 Senators introduced the Safe Chemicals Act of 2013 in April. The legislation would provide long overdue fixes to the nation's broken system for regulating chemicals. It would limit the use of unsafe chemicals linked to cancer and other illnesses. Urge your Senators to support the bill!
Mind the Store Launched!
Do you shop at Kroger, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Costco, Home Depot, CVS, Lowe's, BestBuy or Safeway? These are the top ten retailers in the US. A new campaign to encourage them to learn about hazardous chemicals in their products, and to encourage suppliers to choose safer alternatives was launched. You can add your voice to those urging action here.
