Did you know that many chemicals that are in everyday products we use for our kids and families are potentially toxic and harmful? Products sold in the U.S., like toys and food containers, are NOT regulated and tested for safety!

Of the 85,000 synthetic chemicals introduces into the market since the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed in 1976, the EPA has required testing on less than 10 percent.

This law hasn’t been updated in 38 years — yet 20,000 new chemicals have been added. You know how important green and healthy living is to me — and this outrages me!

Most chemicals are never tested for their impacts on human health and the environment. It is time to update the regulation on these chemicals, and you can be a part of this change.

Seventh Generation has worked for 25 years towards creating healthy home by delivering plant-derived products using bio-based ingredients. Now they are working hard to push for reform on TSCA, to have all of these chemicals studied, evaluated, and tested.

How can you get involved and make the world safer for our kids?

Join Seventh Generation & me and sign their petition for safer chemicals!
