Tell Congress – Kids Need Safe Products!

No child should be exposed to toxic chemicals in their sippy cups, shampoo, or mattress. Toxic chemicals in household products are linked to learning disabilities, autism, cancer, and other health problems. Over a quarter of learning and developmental disabilities are caused in whole or in part from toxic chemicals and other environmental factors.

Last year, the US Congress – both the House and Senate – took major steps toward chemical safety reform by passing bills to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act. Now, the two pieces of legislation must be combined before the final version can go to President Obama for his signature.

Unfortunately, there are parts of the bills, especially in the Senate version, that put special interests before our kids’ health. For example, the Senate bill makes it harder for the Environmental Protection Agency to restrict chemicals in imported products and would block states from taking action on chemicals while EPA is reviewing their safety, which could take years. The House bill fails to provide a mandatory schedule to take action on toxic chemicals in products.

Please tell Congress [ http://bit.ly/TSCApetitionToCongress ] to protect our children’s health by making the final bill as strong as possible. Thank you for taking a couple of minutes today to make a difference!
