  Companies for Safer Chemicals Coalition 

A group of leading consumer brands, led by asbc and Seventh Generation, announced the creation of a coalition to ensure Congress modernizes the nation’s out-of-date chemical laws, and to counter the narrative that businesses desire a weakreform bill. The story has already been picked up by several national outlets, including the Huffington PostThe Hill and an audio clip is available from our friends at SoundBite Services.

ACTION: Interested businesses can sign the declaration here.
