Disclosure- I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Seventh Generation. I received a promotional item and product samples as a thank you for participating

Toxins are all around us in our environment but not only outside or near facotries.  There are also quite a few toxins in our homes.  Many of which we brought in from the market.  How is this possible? Well for example 80,000 synthetic chemicals introduced into the market since the Toxic Substances Control Act was passed in 1976, the EPA has required testing on less than 10%.

pic9Scientists have linked exposure to toxic chemicals to quite a few health risks, including: cancer, Alzheimer’s, learning disabilities, asthma, birth defects, and other reproductive problems.  All of which would occur a whole lot less if congress would update one law, The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).  TCA  was passed in 1976, and has never been updated since its inception. As of now there are thousands of potentially harmful chemicals used in the marketplace since the 1970’s without proper testing and without disclosure by the companies that produce them.  The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was passed in 1976, and  has never been updated since its inception. As of now, thousands of potentially harmful chemicals continue to be used in the marketplace since the 1970’s without proper testing and without disclosure by the companies that produce them.  But what pray tell can you do about it?  Why not check out the Natural Resources Defense Council website.

But the most important thing you can to is urge Congress to act quickly.  Sign the petition for safer chemicals.  The goal of Seventh Generation is to collect 100,000 signatures by April 24th. #FightToxins

What I think is the scariest part of this campaign is what exactly are in our cleaners and household products?  Sure they list ingredients but what do these ingredients really do?  Without someone testing them how can we really believe our household items are safe?  We cant and this is frightening to a parent and a family member.
