Safer Products in California
We championed legislation that guides the California Green Chemistry Initiative, which will mean less toxic products for everyone in the state.
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signs into law two bills that give the state authority to monitor the use of chemicals in everyday products and to create a public, online database of information about these chemicals. The legislation will also design a process to evaluate and, if necessary, regulate chemicals of concern in consumer products. Environmental and public health advocates see passage of these bills as potentially transforming the way California deals with toxic chemicals.
