Clean Water campaigns statewide and locally to reduce and eliminate toxic chemical exposures in our everyday lives - in buildings, schools, and workplaces, air, water and food, and in consumer products.
"I’m proud to see that many large global retailers are paying attention to this campaign and consumer demands for safer products and applaud those that have received top grades. There is much more that needs to be done and I am particularly disturbed to see the two top retailers of baby products falling behind. Hopefully, our visit today and the release of the 2nd Retailer Report Card will urge both Babies R Us and Buy Buy Baby to take serious action.”
We can't throw tires away in landfills because of all the toxic chemicals they contain so why is it okay to grind them up, call it recycled rubber mulch and use them on children's playgrounds? Recycled tire rubber contains numerous toxic chemicals including styrene, a chemical that is neurotoxic and a likely human carcinogen, butadiene-a proven human carcinogen linked to leukemia and lymphoma and lead and cadmium which are also neurotoxic.
