What's At Stake
Did you know that every day, you and I come in contact with toxic flame retardants? Many household goods — from the crib mattresses our babies sleep on to the sofa you may be sitting on right now or even the electronic device you are holding in your hand — could be manufactured with chemicals that migrate out of these products and are linked to serious health risks. That is why the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) made the groundbreaking decision to move forward with a ban on these chemicals in children’s products, furniture, mattresses, and the casings around electronics. The CPSC made the right decision to begin the process to ban the use of organohalogen flame retardants, but it has not yet finalized the ban. Keep the pressure on the CPSC to finalize the ban now.
