Toxin Free Campaign

Reform the Toxic Substances Control Act

We work passionately every day to eliminate harmful toxins from everyday household products. One of the top priorities in The Campaign For a Toxin-Free Generation is to change the way chemicals are regulated in the United States.

Protecting Families

For 25 years we've created healthy products for healthy homes by using plant-derived, bio-based ingredients. We speak loudest through our products: We won't use chemicals of concern and we disclose all ingredients right on our packaging.

But not all products are held to the same standards, and we think this should change. To protect our families, children and pets, we are calling on Washington to improve the standards for chemical regulation for all household products.

We're working towards this goal with an eye to a future where everyone is protected and living in a toxin free environment.

Current Law is Outdated

The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) was passed in 1976 and, unlike other major environmental laws, has never been updated. Some people might assume that the chemicals used to make products sold in the U.S., like toys and food containers, are regulated and tested for safety — but they are not.

  • Over 80,000 chemicals are currently available for use in the market. The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) grandfathered in 62,000 chemicals when enacted in 1976 and over 20,000 have since been added. The EPA has required very few of these to be tested for their impacts on human health and the environment.
  • TSCA makes it difficult for consumers and businesses to find the information they need to identify which chemicals are safe and unsafe.
