Please sign a petition to Governor Baker and the members of the Massachusetts legislature to urge them to protect our health from toxic chemicals.
We are grateful for efforts by the Massachusetts government to focus on responding to the COVID-19 crisis. This petition will be delivered after the crisis has subsided and the government is returning to other business.
Toxic chemicals linked to cancer, asthma, learning disabilities, infertility and a host of other health problems are pervasive in our everyday lives.
Toxic flame retardant chemicals are found in children’s products, furniture, mattresses, carpeting and window coverings, but they’re not needed for fire safety. Toxic PFAS chemicals (the “forever chemicals” found in non-stick coatings on pans) are added to some food packaging. Both get into our environment and our bodies and are linked to serious health impacts.
PLEASE sign the petition to support legislation to ban toxic flame retardants (H.3500/S.2349) and ban PFAS in food packaging (H.3839/S.1315).
