The USA need a new toxic chemical law–and fast.
Join Moms Clean Air Force in Telling the Senate to Pass Stronger Toxic Chemical Standards and keep the air within our homes safe and clean for our children.
Pass the Safe Chemicals Act
” Recently, a team of researchers from Duke University and UC Berkeley found that 85% of couch cushions contain toxic or untested chemicals. For instance, 41% of couch cushions contain chlorinated Tris, a carcinogenic flame retardant chemical.
That’s because the 35-year-old Toxic Substances Control Act allows hazardous or untested chemicals to be added to furniture and other household products without being tested for their health effects.
Right now, there are 80,000 chemicals on the market in the United States that are either known to be harmful or that haven’t been tested.
These dangerous chemicals migrate into the air inside and outside our homes–the air our families breathe every day–exposing us to harmful carcinogens.
The Toxic Substances Control Act is in need of an updated. I urge you to support stronger toxic chemical standards so that we may protect our families from dangerous, cancer-causing chemicals and preserve clean air within our homes. ”
