Tell chemical industry their profits can’t trump kids’ health

The American Chemistry Council should be ashamed of itself.

Last week, the heavyweight industry group killed a common sense, bi-partisan effort to ban the controversial chemical bisphenol-A (BPA) from baby bottles and children's drinking cups. This, despite strong science linking kids’ exposure to the chemical with a range of health effects later in life, from breast cancer to infertility and diabetes.

I just told the chemical industry they should be ashamed of themselves. Last week they blocked a common-sense, bi-partisan effort to take the dangerous chemical BPA out of kids’ sippy cups and baby bottles.

Join me and Pesticide Action Network in letting them know we’re fed up with them putting chemical industry profits over kids’ health. Click here to send a letter to the American Chemistry Council:
