PVC-Free Children Toys in Toxic PVC Packaging

By |January 8, 2009 |Chemicals in Products, Petitions, Toys & Activities|

Surprisingly enough, just because a manufacturer states that all toys are PVC-free, does NOT necessarily mean that the packaging they sit in and are brought into your home with are! Take Tiny Love™ for example.  A respectable company with really cute products, but infant toys such as their play gyms are packaged in PVC!   Nothing like a toxic stink that can potentially leak right into materials under the right circumstances (such as a hot shipping container or other vehicle).

Just a Few Clicks To Help Ban BPA: Act TODAY

By |August 20, 2008 |Chemicals in Products, Petitions|

What would you be willing to do to ensure your baby is safe from toxic chemicals? What we ask of you today is EASY! When it comes to the safety and well-being of our babies and children, lets not leave it up to the chemical industry to decide what is best! California’s landmark bill, SB 1713, would ban bisphenol A from baby bottles and sippy cups, and it could be up for a vote as early as this afternoon. The BPA bill is in trouble.

Environmental Working Group has sent out a number of action alerts to their 38,000 person California list, but the chemical industry has more manpower at this point. And it’s starting to get the legislators. Let’s stand up, and follow these simple steps (from EWG) to help in the Ban of BPA… […]
