Join us on June 10th, as we travel to Albany New York to let our elected officials know that the time has come for them to pass the New York State, Child Safe Products Act.
Attendees will meet in front of the WE ACT office at 7 am, where a bus will pick us up and drive us to Albany. Once we arrive to Albany we will break up into teams and meet with elected officials to have our demands heard.
The Child Safe Products Act is a bill that would accomplish the following:
- Identify chemicals of high concern
- Create a priority list of chemicals of high concern found in children's products, and require that safer alternatives be used.
- Require manufacturers to disclose the use of these priority chemicals in children's products, and alert retailers to their presence.
- Phase out the most dangerous chemicals in children's products.
These chemicals include, benzene, formaldehyde, lead, mercury, antimony, arsenic, cadmium and cobalt.
