Millions of Babies Crawling to Washington for Toxic Chemical Policy Reform

As a parent, the health of our kids is a high priority, yet many of the things we bring into our homes can have an adverse effect on them.

Exposure to toxic chemicals in everyday household products can impact the health of our children, and we as gatekeepers are responsible for them. But how can we really keep them safe if companies aren’t required to label their products truthfully?

Isn’t it time to change that?

Mounting scientific evidence points to widespread exposure to chemicals that can cause serious and adverse impacts on human health, particularly for children.

The federal law that should protect us from health-harming chemicals just doesn’t work. Since 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has required safety testing on only 200 of the more than 80,000 chemicals on the market. We need a stronger chemical law to keep our families safe and healthy.
