babyhappyNothing is more important to us than protecting our children. Which is precisely why we’re huge fans of Environmental Working Group (EWG.org).
Feeding our children should be about choosing first foods, messy bibs, and learning to use a cup – not keeping tabs on scientifc research to avoid harmful chemicals like bisphenol-A (BPA).
We want EWG at the table, advocating for our kids – and yours – so their health is no longer compromised by toxic chemicals like BPA, which is dangerous to kids’ growing bodies, implicated in diseases and problems such as diabetes, heart disease, neurological disorders, and cancer.
Join us in supporting EWG Action Fund and protecting our families from BPA.
We’re impressed by EWG’s track record
We promote EWG because they work long, hard, and smart to pass strong laws that protect American families from chemicals like BPA.
Plus, their cutting-edge research and constant presence in Congress has played a major role in some important wins:
Six U.S. baby bottle makers agreed to stop making their polycarbonate (#7) plastic products with BPA.
CT, NJ, and MN have passed statewide BPA legislation aimed at protecting children and families.
There’s a lot of work left:
BPA remains in the lining of aluminum baby formula cans and many other food and drink containers. We’re grateful that EWG is working on important legislation in California and Washington, DC that would virtually eliminate BPA from baby feeding products.
Now is absolutely the time to contribute to EWG. They need your support to work against the well-funded chemical lobby and eliminate BPA as a threat to our children.
Join us today in supporting EWG Action Fund. We’re glad they’re on our side – and want them to stay there. Visit EWG.org for more information!
