THE PROBLEM

Toxic chemicals are hiding in products on store shelves. Harmful BPA and BPS coat receipts, PFAS hides in food packaging, and phthalates lurk in fragrances, but consumers are left in the dark when making purchasing decisions. Companies have the responsibility to protect Canadians from harmful chemicals in the products they sell. In the absence of government action, retailers need to step up and use their market power to eliminate toxics.

The Solution

Canadians shouldn’t have to worry about toxics in the products they buy. That’s why we challenge and work with retailers to remove toxic chemicals in products so that families, communities, and workers will be protected.
