Concerned About Exposure To Toxic Chemicals?

Are you concerned about exposure to toxic chemicals?

We are, too—and that’s why we need you to contact your member of Congress today. By taking action today, you will be joining thousands of people from across the country who are emailing and calling on Congress to support the strongest possible laws on toxic chemicals.

Here is why this issue is so important: the weak and outdated Toxic Substances Control Act does next to nothing to keep you and me safe from toxic chemicals.

In fact, the scary truth is that there are about 80,000 chemicals approved for use in everyday products and very few have been tested to see if they are harmful. Many are linked to reproductive disorders, learning disabilities, diabetes, and cancer. That’s a whole plethora of chemicals that Americans are exposed to on a daily basis!

We need you to call on Congress to make sure that reform of our toxic chemical laws is substantive and real. Chemical reform must protect pregnant women, workers, children and overburdened communities. As drafted, the proposals before Congress, the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (S. 1009) and the Chemicals in Commerce Act, DO NOT pass the test

YOUR MESSAGE

Please Stand Behind Real TSCA Reform!

Dear Member of Congress,



The weak and outdated Toxic Substances Control Act does next to nothing to keep Americans safe from toxic chemicals. Since it was passed more than three decades ago, about 80,000 chemicals were approved for use in everyday products and very few have been tested for human health safety, even when they are linked to reproductive disorders, learning disabilities, diabetes and cancer. This must stop! We need a strong effective law at the federal level to protect our health.

REAL Reform must protect the public and take into consideration the particular health needs of pregnant women, workers, children and overburdened communities. As drafted, the bills before Congress (the Chemical Safety Improvement Act (S. 1009) and the Chemicals in Commerce Act) DO NOT have my support.

To win my support for reform, a bill to reform TSCA must authorize EPA to move swiftly to protect Americans from exposure to dangerous toxic chemicals.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
[City, State ZIP]
