Our Work With Seventh Generation to #FightToxins


For the next month 100 of our members will become Toxin Freedom Fighters as they spread the word through blogs and social media about the need to update and reform the Toxic Chemicals Control Act of 1976. In 1976 60,000 chemicals were grandfathered in and since then 20,000 new chemicals have been added, but fewer than 10,000 of them have ever been tested.

Seventh Generation is calling upon concerned citizens to sign a petition that will be delivered to Congress on April 30, 2014 to show strength of will that lawmakers should re-evaluate the Toxic Chemicals Control Act for the first time since 1976. 100,000 signatures are needed on FightToxins.com to make a notable difference. Seventh Generation is calling upon Congress to require that chemicals should be tested, not arbitrarily put into our household products and foods and beverages. In order for a chemical to be tested it must be deemed  an “unreasonable risk” to public health or the environment before it can be regulated by law.

Throughout the month we will be sharing all of the posts on Pinterest as well as on our Social Good Moms Tumblr blog.

If you believe in reform of the Toxic Chemicals Control Act, sign the petition and make change.
