California’s ground-breaking Safer Consumer Products (SCP) program creates a scientifically based regulatory structure so that product manufacturers can explore safer alternatives to toxic chemicals in the products they sell here. This program is a win for Californians who want to protect their families and the environment, as well as for companies who want to meet market demands for safer products, both in this state and beyond. Help us make it stronger today.
We are winning the fight to shut down Enbridge’s Line 5 pipeline. Enbridge and the Michigan Chamber of Commerce might have millions of dollars, but our people-powered campaign has led the way for bold action from Attorney General Nessel and Governor Whitmer. But we’re not done yet – this is a critical moment and your state senator and representative need to hear from you.
Poly- and perfluorinated alkyl substances, commonly known as PFAS, are a class of almost 5,000 man-made chemicals that pose a serious threat to public health and the environment:
They are in the bodies of virtually all Americans, and can contaminate drinking water, air, soil, and food. According to a limited federal monitoring program, California has the most drinking water detections (435) in the nation. As we look for more PFAS at lower levels than the federal government, we will likely discover that the problem is much worse than we thought.
Urge your legistors to support HB 1752 and protect Pennsylvania's air and communities.
Pleae weigh in on one of the most critical challenges of our time: how to protect communities from storms that are intensifying as the earth's climate continues to warm. Urge the Texas Water Development Board TODAY to invest in proven, natural systems that give flood waters a place to go and help restore the natural environment.
On July 9th, Governor Lamont formed a taskforce to make recommendations on how to manage PFAS contamination. This is good news but we want to make sure comprehensive steps are taken to 1) restrict firefighting foam, 2) restrict other sources of contamination like food packaging, 3) implement strict water testing guidelines and 4) set a health protective drinking water standard.
Toxic chemicals such as PFAS are found in many common products such as clothing, carpets, fabrics for furniture, adhesives, paper packaging for food, firefighting foam, and heat-resistant/non-stick cookware.
