Stronger law can better target toxic chemicals that surround us at home

Thousands of household goods contain chemicals linked to serious health problems.

toxics in the home

In June 2016, President Obama signed the Lautenberg Act, finally reforming the 40-year-old law after more than a decade of effort. For the first time, the law gives EPA real power to address toxic chemicals, but the Trump administration is threatening to reverse this progress.

We’re fighting a reckless EPA to make sure the new law lives up to its promise. The new, stronger law can only work if it’s carried out lawfully and in a way that protects health. If this EPA won’t do that, we’ll hold them accountable.

We remain confident this strong, groundbreaking environmental law will ultimately deliver on its promises.
