Did you see that Seventh Generation has taken a leadership role on cleaning up our toxics laws?
We’ve been blogging for years about the fact that over 80,000 chemicals are in products we use everyday— and they’ve never been tested for safety. Our kids are being exposed to chemicals that can alter their hormones, cause learning problems, early puberty, and many chronic diseases. Chemicals used regularly in consumer products are linked to cancers, infertility, early puberty, obesity, reproductive system problems, and learning disabilities. Since the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed in 1976, the EPA has required testing on less than 10% of 85,000 chemicals in commerce! Even cancer causing Asbestos can’t be banned under this current law. Can you say broken?
Our toxics laws need a massive overhaul to protect children and families. We can’t do it alone. There’s hope for a change! Seventh Generation is working to push a reform on TSCA which would have all of these chemicals studied and evaluated.
Let’s demand that Congress reevaluate the Toxic Substances Control Act for the first time since 1976.␣
You can help create change – visit www.fighttoxins.com to sign the petition and learn more. The signatures will be delivered to Congress on April 30, 2014. We need your help to make sure they hear parents loud and clear! If we take the right steps, our children will all live a cleaner, and toxin-free life– and be healthier for it.
Will you join us and share this with your friends and family? Thanks to Seventh Generation for their leadership on this issue!
