Take Action

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!


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

Get dangerous chemicals out of personal care products!

Many companies are reformulating their products to remove DMDM Hydantoin, which releases cancer-causing formaldehyde, and four parabens linked to endocrine disruption. But Revlon and L'Oreal are sticking with their formulations and leaving customers at risk.

It's time that Revlon and L'Oreal update their formulations. We need you to take action today! Add your name to our petition demanding that Revlon and L’Oreal remove dangerous ingredients from their products.
