A new study released today by HealthyStuff.org found elevated levels of toxic chemicals in popular Halloween costumes, accessories and even “trick or treat” bags. Dangerous chemicals like phthalates, flame retardants, vinyl (PVC) plastic, organotins, and even lead – all of which are on our Hazardous 100+ list.
We’re just 8 days away… We’ve asked the big ten retailers to respond to our new Mind the Store campaign by June 1st, and I think the initial responses will be telling to see who is willing to sit down with us and work out a plan for addressing toxic chemicals.
Our bloggers are helping to move the market away from toxic chemicals! With the combined efforts of concerned citizens around the country as well as the top retailers ongoing efforts, we are hoping that trips to your local retailer will come with a little extra piece of mind.
As a college student it’s safe to say I spend a lot of time on YouTube. But it was a new experience for me to watch moms and bloggers from across the country post videos about their involvement in the Mind the Store campaign. We wanted to share some of the highlights so you could see how easy it is to ask your favorite retailers to Mind the Store.
You may have seen the buzz online about our newest campaign called Mind the Store. To be honest, I’m really excited about this endeavor. If there is one thing I can really relate to, it’s the experience of walking into my favorite retailer and wondering which of the products are safe and which may contain toxic chemicals.
