Parents Take Precautions on Toxics
The New York Times has a great profile on parents who don't care how safe the chemical companies say their products are -- they want toxics-free kids, and they'll protect them as best they can by choosing the greenest products available. It's another endorsement for using purchasing power and word-of-mouth to let industry know that consumers want them to err on the side of safety for families and children, rather than introducing chemicals and products before they've been fully assessed for health risks.
