Celebrate Earth Day in a Most Meaningful Way. Be a Green Super Hero

It's not every day that you have the chance to be a true super hero so you better take the chance today!  Read themessage below from Lindsay Dahl, Deputy Director of Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families and then take action to be a green super hero with me and other concerned consumers...

Today we have exciting news to share; Congress is poised to take a meaningful step to protect you and your family from toxic chemicals.  We need your help to make sure your Senators know that fixing the toxic chemicals law is important to American families!

We know you're tired of having to worry about which products in your home are safe and which ones may contain toxic chemicals like lead, formaldehyde or dangerous plastic additives.  So are we. We believe Americans shouldn't need a Ph.D. in chemistry to make safe purchases at the checkout counter.  The just introduced Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 would require chemical makers to prove their chemicals are safe before they are allowed in our homes, schools, and workplaces.

Click here to take action!

Just as we have laws against people breaking into our homes and threatening our safety, we can have laws against chemical intruders that enter our bodies. Without our  knowledge or consent, these toxic intruders put us and our children at risk. Science is linking toxic chemical exposures to all kinds of serious diseases and disorders, including childhood leukemia and brain cancers, breast and testicular cancer, neurological disorders like autism and Alzheimer's, and fertility problems.

We need you to tell your Senator to co-sponsor this important piece of legislation. By signing up as a co-sponsor, your Senator can show their commitment to putting common sense limits on toxic chemicals.

If you prefer to make a two-minute call to your Senator, please call the Capitol switchboard at: (202) 224-3121.

Thanks for your continued support. Asking your Senators to co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act is an important step towards safer products, stronger businesses and healthier families!
