It’s April Fools’ Day, and this is no joke – while other big retailers like Target and Walmart are beginning to tackle toxic chemicals, Walgreens has yet to develop a comprehensive plan to address toxic chemicals in the products they sell.
As the nation’s largest drugstore chain, they have a moral responsibility to sell products that are safe— not toxic.

You can’t fool us @Walgreens! Toxic chemicals are no joke. Will you #MindtheStore http://on.fb.me/1pEvfwk via @saferchemicals
With your help, we can use the power of social media to tell big retailers like Walgreens to Mind the Store once and for all.
Why can’t Walgreens join Walmart and Target and get tough on toxic chemicals? After all, with great market power comes great responsibility. We’re ready to work with Walgreens to create action plans on the Hazardous 100+ list of toxic chemicals.
We appreciate the steps Walgreens has taken to address certain environmental and public health risks.
In particular, we applaud Walgreens’ success in launching the “Ology™” Brand of Healthy Home Products that is free of phthalates as well as other risky chemicals such as parabens, formaldehyde, triclosan, and sodium laureth sulfate.
Efforts like this to reduce the risks posed by toxic chemicals are so important—but there is so much more to be done!
