Did you know that the EPA is required to test only a few hundred of the 85,000 different chemicals currently on the market? In fact, the federal law governing how we regulate chemicals doesn’t even require chemical companies to prove that the chemicals they make are safe before they end up in products.
This means that on a daily basis we are at risk of being exposed to dangerous, cancer-causing chemicals. These harmful chemicals may be in our workplaces, our classrooms and our homes in our clothing, furniture, cleaning products, plastics, cosmetics, children’s toys and countless other everyday products.
That’s why I’ve signed a petition urging the Senate to pass the Safe Chemicals Act, which would take meaningful steps to protect our families from harmful toxic chemicals. Will you join me?
