Stand Up for Safer Chemicals.

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.
Now is the time to update the regulation on these chemicals.
Over 80,000 chemicals are currently available for use in the market. The EPA has required very few of these to be tested for their impacts on human health and the environment.
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.
