|A Message From Green Living Super Mom and Star, Jessica Alba, "Take action today and ask your Senators to support the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011! "|
May 24, 2011
Today I am excited to announce my partnership with the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition to stand up for America’s moms and ask for common sense limits on toxic chemicals. I’m asking for your help today to send a clear message to Congress: toxic chemicals don’t belong in our homes, bodies and environment.
As I’m pregnant with my second child, I have been thinking back to the days when my husband and I decided to start a family, nearly four years ago. Just the thought of bringing a child into this world prompted a long list of things to think about: am I getting enough folic acid? Am I eating enough fruits and vegetables? What baby proofing will we need to do to ensure our house is the safest environment for our new baby?
I quickly learned that it is impossible to “baby proof” your house from toxic chemicals. They’re common ingredients in products we all use, even some that are designed especially for infants like cribs and nursing pillows. Just like you, I was alarmed to learn that it is perfectly legal to use these chemicals in our everyday consumer goods.
I don’t know about you, but I’m not ok with that. As a matter of fact, I think it’s time we take action together and stand up for a healthier tomorrow.
Take action today and ask your Senators to support the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011. It's a new bill that would increase the safety of chemicals used in your consumer products, increase public access to health and safety information, and protect vulnerable populations like pregnant women and children.

Today, I am in Washington D.C. to meet with key Members of Congress and ask them to co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act. Will you join me in showing Congress that American moms care about this issue?
