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 focused on defending existing clean air standards and closing policy loopholes that expose Americans to air pollution.
Why: Thousands of chemicals are in everyday products and in food, and thousands of communities have lead in their water.
How: Ensure reforms live up to their promise, empower retailers to use safer additives and take on potential sources of lead exposure.
Why: Companies can remove hazardous chemicals from products – beyond what the law requires – and drive demand for safer chemicals.
How: Work with major retailers like Walmart to take big steps toward reducing chemicals of concern in the products they sell.
