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!
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.
