The Kid-Safe Chemicals Act- Sign the Declaration


Oh yeah, am I ready and itching to support the Kid-Safe Chemical Act. If you want to see a compelling reason to do so, watch this.

To learn more about the need for the Kid Safe Chemical act, read these posts from Non-Toxic Kids and this information from the Environmental Working Group and Healthy Child, Healthy World.

It’s time. We have a forward thinking president, and a congress that wants to protect our children more than ever (with a few prominent, motivated senators in the area of protecting children from chemicals). Now it is time for an updated, precautionary approach to chemical regulation that protects our children rather than the wealthy chemical industry.

Stay tuned to this blog for more information on the Kid Safe Chemical Act and to learn ways you can help support it. I think many of us parents will be lining up for this one–we can do it.

    Katy, It's so great to see this here! It is time, you're right. And it's possible – with all of us speaking up together. Ready to host a kid-safe house party? Just say the word, EWG has got all the materials for an interesting, inspirational party. I'm at: lisa@ewg.org. Also, on Th 2/19 @ 10 am PST/1 pm EST EWG & Healthy Child Healthy World are hosting an open conference call to discuss the legislation and our campaign to pass it. Details here: http://tinyurl.com/ccseke. Thanks to Katy for supporting this legislation. It's so time for a new, strong chemical policy in the US!

    It's time to make our children's environment safer with fewer chemicals. I do notice a Campbell's Soup ad on this page. Consumer Reports tested Campbell's chicken noodle soup for BPA and reported that it had one of the highest levels of this chemical of the canned goods they tested. Maybe having their ad on this page isn't a good idea. It underscores how hard it is to know what food brands are allowing BPA to leach into the food and they continue to use it.
