Policy Advocacy
The MNCEH works at the state and federal levels to advocate for policies that protect children from exposure to toxic chemicals in consumer products, our homes and the environment. Our current priorities are comprehensive legislation to give Michiganders the right-to-know if toxic chemicals are in children’s products and several policies that would ban or restrict the use of certain toxic substances including toxic flame retardants and the pesticide lindane, and federal legislation to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act.

Education and Outreach
The MNCEH organizes and trains our partners to run Home Safe Home parties; a fun and effective way to teach citizens how to reduce their exposure to toxic chemicals.

Home Safe Home Party Options
Our Toxic Stuff – Toxic chemicals in consumer products.
Keeping it Green While you Clean – Toxic chemicals in household cleaning products.
What’s Bromine doing in my Burger? Toxic chemicals in the food system.
Pretty Gross – Toxic chemicals in cosmetics.

Citizen Science Corps
The Citizen Science Corps aims to build an understanding of the science behind environmental health issues, engage citizen scientists in policy efforts, connect citizens scientists to cutting edge research and researchers from Michigan and throughout the world, and contribute to building a better understanding of environmental health threats facing our communities.
