Advocates call on EPA to finalize proposed ban, protect Americans from toxic products
On October 5, Amazon issued its first-ever public safer chemicals policy. The policy includes restrictions on dozens of toxic phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde releasers, nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), triclosan, and toluene in its private brand baby, household cleaning, personal care, and beauty products in the United States.
Today Target announced a new chemical policy and goals. Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families’ Mind the Store campaign has challenged Target and other retailers to develop comprehensive policies to eliminate and substitute toxic chemicals.
