Take Action

Stand up for GE labeling!

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has given the green light to Big Ag to market two varieties of GMO apples, and they won’t be labeled.

But there is something we can do about it! Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) have introduced the Genetically Engineered Food Right-to-Know Act that would require labeling of foods with genetically engineered ingredients.

Tell your senators and member of Congress to co-sponsor this new pro-consumer bill!

Defeat the Chemicals in Commerce Act today!

Thousands of untested chemicals could be labeled safe with little or no testing. The Chemicals in Commerce Act is being shopped around the U.S. House of Representatives. It's beyond the pale. This bill - backed by chemical industry lobbyists - is nothing more than a rubber stamp for untested chemicals.

Tell your representative to oppose the Chemicals in Commerce Act today!

FOOD SHOULD BE FOOD!

When the Food Babe, Vani Hari, challenged Subway to remove azodicarbonamide - a chemical used in yoga mats and other plastics - from its bread, EWG knew this was only the tip of the iceberg and decided to find out what other foods contain ADA. Our analysis found it in nearly 500 foods.

Tell major brands, including Pillsbury, Sara Lee, Shoprite, Safeway, Smucker's, Fleischman's, Jimmy Dean, Kroger, Little Debbie, Tyson and Wonder, to stop using the plastics chemical azodicarbonamide in their products today!

It’s time for real chemical reform!

Our nation's toxic chemical policy - The Toxic Substances Control Act - is so weak that when a hazardous chemical leaked from a coal processing plant into West Virginia's water supply last week, officials did not know the harmful effects of drinking that contaminated water.

We need toxics reform now - we needed it before this catastrophe. Take action today: Tell your members of Congress you want real chemical reform now. It's time for legislation that protects our health and the health of our families
