Tell the EPA: Stop the Chemical Industry's Attempts To Cripple Our Toxics Law
The recent headlines have been shocking: toxic chemicals in our everyday stuff — furniture, cleaning supplies, shampoo — are interfering with our ability to reproduce.
Our chemical regulatory system has been rigged in favor of bringing new chemicals to market, instead of protecting our health from potential harms. Even after our chemical policy was updated in 2016, with strong bipartisan support, the implementation of the new law under Trump's EPA fell far short of its mission to protect public health.
With Michael Regan at the helm of the EPA, it is time to stop the chemical industry's attempts to cripple our hard-won toxics law. We know we can do better — and we know our children, and their children, are counting on it. Tell Administrator Regan to protect our children from toxic chemicals.

I am writing as a parent concerned about the health effects of toxic chemical exposures. Recent headlines about declining sperm counts and reproductive toxicity linked to endocrine-disrupting chemicals have deepened my concern.
As the EPA's new Administrator, you have a responsibility and an opportunity to fix a public health problem decades in the making, by faithfully implementing the updated Toxic Substances Control Act and prioritizing public health.
For too long, our chemical regulatory system has been manipulated by the chemical industry in favor of bringing new chemicals to market, instead of protecting our children from health harms.
Our chemical policies aren't working. Our kids are being exposed to chemicals in the stuff we use every day that may be causing long-term harm. It's time for EPA to fully implement the updated toxics law, with public health as the top priority.
