Safer States, a national group of coalitions working to reduce toxic chemicals in our country, reports that twenty-six states (the orange states in the map below) are considering legislation that would affect the use of chemicals like BPA and toxic flame retardants.
Some of the proposed policies would ban chemicals such as BPA, toxic flame retardants, toxic heavy metals, and formaldehyde from children’s products. Some states may even require manufacturers to disclose toxic chemicals in certain products. Check out the website for more website and what legislation your state is considering.
