sign the petition for safer chemicals.
Congress has the power to hold companies responsible for the safety of the ingredients they use. Tell them it's time to reform the Toxic Substances Control Act, and protect our families from harmful chemicals with suspected links to cancer, birth defects, asthma and more. Help us by signing the petition below NOW!
The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was passed in 1976 and has never been updated. Some people might assume that the chemicals used to make products sold in the U.S., like toys and food containers, are regulated and tested for safety — but they are not. Over 80,000 chemicals are currently available for use in the market. The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) grandfathered in 62,000 chemicals when enacted in 1976 and over 20,000 have since been added. The EPA has required very few of these to be tested for their impacts on human health and the environment. Now is the time to update the regulation on these chemicals.
