Our air, water and household products are too often tainted with pollutants or toxic chemicals.
We're working to protect American families by strengthening and defending policies and greater corporate responsibility. We're determined to advance on both fronts, fighting threats to progress.
Why: Significant reductions in air pollutants will save thousands of lives, especially in at-risk communities.
How: We’re defending clean air standards, closing policy loopholes and harnessing innovative technology to better address air pollution.
Why: Thousands of chemicals are in everyday products and in food, and thousands of communities have lead in their water.
How: We're defending the U.S. chemical safety law, taking on potential sources of harmful chemicals and spurring technology to help guide us.
Why: Companies can remove hazardous chemicals from products – beyond what the law requires – and drive demand for safer chemicals.
How: We're working with major retailers like Walmart to take big steps toward reducing chemicals of concern in the products they sell.
