About the Petition

It's time for Washington to make laws that protect us from harmful chemicals, not laws that protect the companies that make those chemicals.

A new bill has been introduced in Congress, and it's unacceptable. It falls far short of the reforms Americans need and have been assured were in the works. Sen. Boxer is the chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee - the committee that will oversee this bill. We need her leadership now more than ever.

To: Senator Barbara Boxer

As a supporter of Environmental Working Group, I am writing to say that, as always, we're counting on you to fight for real reform on our broken toxics law.

Americans deserve nothing less than a robust regulatory system that ensures that before they go on the market, chemicals won't endanger children's health. We need a reform bill that has some actual reforms.

We need you to reject this bad deal with the chemical industry and make sure that chemicals are safe for all of us— especially our children.

Sincerely,

[your name here]
