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.

A study published in the June issue of the journal Pediatrics looked at the connection between prenatal pesticide exposure and a child's size at birth. By measuring pesticide residues in umbilical cord blood, the researchers found a link between prenatal pesticide exposure and babies with lower birth weights, shorter birth lengths and smaller head circumferences.
