Want to say goodbye to those ever increasing parental worries about toxic chemicals used in everything from sunblock to beach balls, and even canned peaches? So do we!
We're sick and tired of reading report after report about dangers associated with the products we use everyday: Biphenol-A (BPA) in baby bottles, soda cans, and other everyday products; phthalates in toys and pacifiers; formaldehyde in baby shampoo. In fact, dangerous chemicals are found in everything from cosmetics to bedding to school supplies. Really, enough is enough!
That's why MomsRising has joined a growing movement of workers, scientists, fertility experts, and advocates for learning and developmental disabilities in supporting comprehensive reform for America's chemical policy. As part of the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families campaign, we're calling for updated chemical regulations so that chemicals are proven to be safe before they are out on the market and in the products our kids use every day!
Why does Congress need to reform the nation's chemical policy right now?
In the last 18 years, no chemicals have been restricted.
So, what's a concerned mom to do? After you send a letter to Congress urging them to fix the Toxic Substances Control Act (the outdated law from the 1970's that is failing to protect us), you can become a fan of the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Campaign on Facebook.
Since the campaign Facebook page launched last month, we have earned nearly 4,000 fans! That's right, 4,000 folks just like you and me, ready to take control of our futures. Join us!
