I signed a petition today
|March 11, 2010||Filled under My Kids|
I signed a petition today to demand that Congress take action to make chemicals in consumer products kid-safe.
I have two little children. I am concerned about chemicals in everything they touch, eat, and breath. I buy organic produce and eco-friendly detergents. I filter our water. We do not buy canned food. I am afraid that is not enough.
Environmental Working Group tested the umbilical cord blood of 10 newborn babies and found nearly 300 chemicals, including BPA, fire retardants, lead, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and pesticides that were banned more than 30 years ago.
Watch this video to find out how polluted we (humans) are. And sign the petition here.
