Tell the FDA: Protect Women and Infants

Tell the FDA: Protect Women and Infants

Overview
A new report demonstrates that most diapers and menstrual pads contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and phthalates, endangering millions of women and babies who may be absorbing these chemicals through the genitalia. Congress and the FDA must take action to protect these populations. Write to the FDA and Congress, telling them to protect women and infants from these toxic products!
Target
Congress and the FDA
Goal
No allowable level of known toxins in diapers and feminine care products.

"It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result."
- Mahatma Gandhi
