It’s official! Governor Inslee has signed the Pollution Prevention for Our Future Act, and Washington State now has the strongest law regulating toxic chemicals in consumer products in the nation.
This is BIG news. The Washington State Legislature stood up to tremendous pressure from the chemical industry in moving forward this bold action. The bill gets us off the toxic treadmill by tackling toxic pollution at its source in consumer products, preventing both toxic exposures and later clean-up. It gives our state agencies the authority they need to take action on chemicals before they become widespread in our homes and the environment.
Legislators deserve a big thank you for passing this legislation and putting Washington at the forefront of the nation, stopping the use of harmful chemicals that pollute our homes, bodies, and environment. Please reach out and thank your legislators who voted YES today!
