We fight for strong chemical policy, work with retailers to phase out hazardous chemicals, and educate the public about ways to protect our families from toxic chemicals.
- Policy: Strong federal and state policies to protect the public from toxic chemicals.
- Retailers: Transform the marketplace through corporate policies to substitute safer chemicals for those known to be toxic.
- Education: A public that can use its power as citizens and consumers effectively.
We work in coalition with hundreds of organizations and businesses. Our coalition is united by our common concern about toxic chemicals in our homes, workplaces, schools and products we use every day.
Our organization was founded in 2009 by environmental health trailblazer Andy Igrejas. Andy built a diverse coalition of hundreds of organizations and businesses that worked together to reform our nation’s broken chemical safety system, which resulted in Congress’s 2016 update to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). He conceived our Mind the Store campaign as a tactic to drive the chemical industry to the table in our fight for this reform for fear of losing market share at retail. Andy passed away in 2018 and we miss him dearly. Our staff and coalition partners honor his legacy by carrying on this work.
