Consumers across the country are visiting their local Walgreens store to ask them to protect us from toxic chemicals in everyday consumer products. New independent testing of products sold at Walgreens shows a variety of toxic chemicals including: hormone-disrupting chemicals in shower curtains and handbags, lead in pet chew toys and flame retardants. No thank-you!
Children face serious health effects from chemical exposure. Knowing what is in the products our children use every day will help us make informed choices – it’s simple. Yet companies are allowed to hide dangerous chemicals in our kid’s toys, shampoo and clothing.You should have a right to know if a toy or other product you are purchasing for a child has a toxic, priority chemical in it. Stand up for your right to know by sending a message today.
We need your help to protect kids from toxic chemicals! You can help make sure our bill to identify chemicals of concern to children passes this session. Please call and email your legislators today!
We're running out of time to pass this vital bill. The Chemical and Toy industries spent a lot of money to oppose a common sense bill to identify chemicals of concern to children and a similar bill died in the House. The good news is that Senate Bill 126 can still move forward and become law – but only if both your legislators hear from you – even if you’ve contacted them before – send a message now!
On February 11, 2014 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published final Permitting Guidance for Hydraulic Fracturing Oil and Gas Activities Using Diesel. Clean Water Action has worked to ensure that the processes are in place to implement the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) where diesel is used in hydraulic fracturing oil and gas drilling, and this was a positive step. We’re now urging EPA to move forward with a formal rulemaking process to make sure that proper permits can be issued in all states under SDWA’s Underground Injection Control Program, which is designed to protect underground sources of drinking water.
