THE PROBLEM

You could unknowingly be exposed to toxic chemicals whether you are applying makeup, sitting on your couch, or cleaning your kitchen counter. Nasty chemicals continue to linger in products Canadians use daily, and many of these chemicals have been linked to serious health issues like cancer, infertility, and asthma.

The Solution

To protect human health and the environment, we need to remove toxic chemicals from the products we use every day. That means that the government and industry need to take action to ban harmful ingredients in consumer products. Consumers also need to be given up-to-date information to choose safe options when they shop.
