Join the Campaign for a Toxic Free Vermont!

Vermonters are potentially at risk from thousands of chemicals used in commerce that have never been fully tested for their toxic effects. When it comes to toxics regulation, the burden is on consumers to prove that chemicals are harmful not on manufacturers to prove that they’re safe.

Vermont has taken action against some of the worst toxins. We’ve passed legislation that increases disclosure for toxic chemicals used in children’s products, required green cleaning products in schools, banned dangerous flame retardants, and eliminated BPA from baby bottles.

But the truth is, there are still many chemicals used in everyday consumer products that pose a threat to the health and safety of Vermonters and our environment. Recent legislation passed by Congress will make it harder than ever for states like Vermont to protect citizens from unsafe chemicals in consumer products.

For these reasons, we need to take action now to eliminate dangerous chemicals from children’s consumer products, provide more information about chemical use to citizens and first responders, and hold responsible parties accountable for any contamination they cause.

I support policies in Vermont that will give citizens and first responders more information about chemicals used by businesses in the state, better protect children from toxins used in products marketed to kids, encourage reduced use of toxics by manufacturers, and hold responsible parties accountable for any contamination they cause.
