Nurse, mother, & business owner: YES to Toxic Free Kids
For years, OEC has been fighting to get toxics out of children’s products. Oregonians strongly support the state taking action, but our legislators have yet to do so. But together, we can make 2015 the year that the Toxics Free Kids Act (SB 478) becomes law once and for all.
Yesterday, Helen Anderson testified that businesses should be held accountable for toxics in consumer products. She was speaking as a nurse, as a mom–but also as an international business woman. Helen owns an Oregon-based company that manufacturers products sold in 35 countries. Helen says that meeting higher standards for toxic-free products wasn’t a huge cost to her bottom line, and it is the right thing to do.
“Infants in other countries are protected from these chemicals. It’s time to show the same concern for our children here in Oregon.”
