States Lead the Way
More than 200 state policies have been enacted to protect citizens from harmful chemicals.
Year after year, state decision-makers are finding new ways to hold polluters accountable and protect children and families from toxic chemicals. Innovative state solutions to national problems protect human and environmental health by:
- Identifying chemicals of greatest concern to vulnerable populations;
- Disclosing the use of these chemicals in our products;
- Banning chemicals that cause disease and contaminate our environment; and
- Moving the marketplace and the nation towards safer alternatives.
Safer States helps state leaders learn from each other by connecting legislators, advocates, and scientists to build on collective successes.
