Children face serious health effects from chemical exposure. Knowing what is in the products our children use every day will help us make informed choices – it’s simple. Yet companies are allowed to hide dangerous chemicals in our kid’s toys, shampoo and clothing.

You should have a right to know if a toy or other product you are purchasing for a child has a toxic, priority chemical in it. Stand up for your right to know by sending a message today.

Protect Kids from Toxic Chemicals - Take Action

We need your help to protect kids from toxic chemicals!  You can help make sure our bill to identify chemicals of concern to children passes in the Senate. Please call and email your Senator today!

Take action now!

We're running out of time to pass this vital bill. The Chemical and Toy industries spent a lot of money to oppose a common sense bill to identify chemicals of concern to children and a similar bill died in the House.

Get Diesel Out of Oil and Gas Drilling - Take Action

frack operations - smaller.JPGOn February 11, 2014 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published final Permitting Guidance for Hydraulic Fracturing Oil and Gas Activities Using Diesel.  Clean Water Action has worked to ensure that the processes are in place to implement the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) where diesel is used in hydraulic fracturing oil and gas drilling, and this was a positive step.  We’re now urging EPA to move forward with a formal rulemaking process to make sure that proper permits can be issued in all states under SDWA’s Underground Injection Control Program, which is designed to protect underground sources of drinking water.

Take Action to Support Clean Energy in Connecticut!

solarConnecticut has strong incentives and financing for clean energy, but through no fault of their own, most residents are unable to participate. Many of our communities are ill-suited for solar power due to tree cover or the direction the roofs face. Additionally, renters are left out as they lack property on which to install a clean energy system. Click here to send a message in support of HB 5412.

Take Action for a Time Out on Fracking!

SB 1132, introduced by Senators Holly Mitchell and Mark Leno, would put a moratorium on fracking, acidizing and other oil and gas well stimulation techniques in California. The bill would ensure that no fracking occurs while the state takes a hard look at the numerous risks that fracking poses to our water, air, health, climate and economy. It’s time to protect our communities and our water.
