Take Action

CPSC - Ban harmful fire retardants in consumer products

Many everyday items such as upholstered furniture and children’s products can contain pounds of toxic- and cancer-causing fire retardants – chemicals that make their way into our bodies.

Today, for the first time, we can tell the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to prohibit products with toxic fire retardants.

Take action now to support a ban before the January 19, 2016 deadline!

Tell the EPA: Protect our drinking water!

Americans deserve to be protected against water contaminated with toxic chemical PFOA.

According to new research, current PFOA standards are hundreds – even thousands – of times too weak to fully protect public health. Even the lowest level detected in nationwide water sampling is about five times higher than what the research says would be dangerous.

Sign EWG’s petition now and tell the EPA it’s time to update federal guidance of safe levels for PFOA in drinking water now!

Oppose the DARK Act!

Rep. Mike Pompeo's (R-Kans) Deny Americans the Right to Know – or DARK – Act recently passed in the U.S. House of Representatives.

If Big Food gets its way and the DARK Act passes the Senate next, the fight for GMO labeling is OVER. There will be no second chances.

We need a supernova of opposition right now to protect our right to know what we're eating and defeat this bill! Click here to contact your senators and urge them to oppose the DARK Act Now! 

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!
