Join the Citizen’s Right-to-Know Phthalates Campaign!

Our Citizen-Backed Proposal
Right now, retailers and consumers are left in the dark as to which products contain phthalates. Our proposal to the Maine Department of Environmental Protection calls for requiring manufacturers of household products to report that information publicly. We need your help so that parents, pregnant women and all Mainers know which products contain these harmful chemicals.

Lewiston Sun Journal - 4/5/2013. 
Letter by Erin Guay - When people shop for their children, it makes sense to check the labels, to see what’s inside them. Unfortunately, beyond a food label, there are other things lurking in kids' products that we have very little control over - dangerous chemicals. BPA in children’s food, parabens in shampoo and phthalates in plastic toys are just a few examples of the chemicals that children can be exposed to.
