It Takes Action-Support the Safe Chemicals Act
Have you asked for a stronger national chemicals policy? You should.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve got more important things to do with my time than research product safety. And I bet you do, too!!
Of course I spend the time necessary to make sure I buy only the safest products for my family. I’m just not happy about it. I mean, products that are on the shelves should be safe, right? Yet, headlines tell me more often than I’d like that they’re not.
Take a few seconds to sign the petition… today.
We need a stronger law!
Which is precisely why I’m joining forces with Pure Natural Diva and Bottles to Britches to support the nationwide effort to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act in Congress. This law was passed back in 1976 (remember The BeeGees?!) and hasn’t adequately protected public health since. It’s high time to strengthen our country’s toxic chemicals law – and right now there’s an opportunity to do exactly that. See, this Spring Senator Frank Lautenberg (NJ) introduced The Safe Chemicals Act.
I hope you’ll join me in asking our representatives in Congress to pass this bill. It’s incredibly important, and the time is now. The more of us who ask, the more likely they are to listen. So go ahead,
Tell Congress to put toxics on its “to do” list NOW
The plan is to make it crystal clear that we want an effective national chemicals policy that protects human health, especially our children who are most affected by toxic chemicals.
The way I see it, if we’re frustrated by the current system (check), we should work hard to change it!
QUICK & EASY – SIGN THIS PETITION TO CONGRESS
Numbers talk: 150,000 signatures is the goal. EWG will deliver this petition to key lawmakers on Capitol Hill to show them how BIG and PASSIONATE this Safe Chemicals movement has become. Can you help us reach our goal today? It’s easy to sign and share – and extremely important to our success.
The time is right now. There is a political window of opportunity to move the Safe Chemicals Act forward in 2010, but in the current political climate, windows close quickly and unpredictably. If we don’t give it our absolute all NOW, when the political momentum is there, we may lose this chance.
Sign it, share it . This issue is far too important to let Congress do nothing. We need your help – by signing and sharing the petition – to get the Safe Chemicals Act on the Congressional “to-do” list. Preferably at the top.
