Our air, water and household products are too often tainted with pollutants or toxic chemicals.
We're working to protect American families by strengthening safeguards, defending current law and promoting corporate responsibility. We're determined to fight threats to progress.
Why: Significant reductions in air pollutants globally could save millions 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: There are hazardous chemicals in everyday products, food and drinking water that present serious risks to our health and well-being.
How: We're defending the reformed chemical safety law, taking on 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.
