Just a Few Clicks To Help Ban BPA: Act TODAY

August 20, 2008 | 0 Comments

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.
The well-funded chemical industry has been calling California households, advertising in newspapers, and lobbying legislators with misinformation about what the bill aims to do. 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…
