The Michigan Network for Children's Environmental Health is a coalition of health professionals, health-affected groups, environmental organizations, and others dedicated to a safe and less toxic world for Michigan's children. Through education, outreach, and advocacy, we work to change current policies and practices that result in exposure of children to environmental toxicants.
Where's Your Right to Choose Safe Children's Products?
BPA in your baby's bottle? Toxic flame retardants in your grandson's mattress? Cadmium in your niece's jewelry? Enough is enough.
Currently, manufacturers are not required to disclose their use of toxic chemicals in children's products. Children's products continue to contain chemicals linked to diseases like cancer, infertility, and learning disabilities. Michigan families deserve the right-to-know about toxic chemicals in children's products so we can make informed purchasing decisions.
State Senators Kahn, Marleau, Nofs, and Warren have made a commitment to work on safe children's products legislation. Please take a moment to thank them, and urge them to introduce this legislation swiftly. The sooner this bill moves, the sooner Michigan families will be empowered to protect their kids from toxic chemicals in children's products.
