Women's Voices for the Earth

Representative Raul Ruiz (D-CA) has introduced the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act (H.R. 2728)  in the 115th Congress. The Act requires full disclosure and product labeling of household and institutional cleaning products.
Currently, cleaning product companies are not required to disclose ingredients in the products they sell in the U.S. Unlike cosmetics and food where you can pick up a product, read the label and find out the ingredients, the public has very little information about what they are being exposed to in products they use to clean their home. 
We know that cleaning products can contain hidden toxic chemicals such as toluene (a reproductive toxin) and 1,4-dioxane (a carcinogen) and that the word “fragrance” on a label can represent dozens of ingredients, some of which may be harmful to your health like phthalates (linked to infertility and breast cancer), styrene (a carcinogen) and allergens.  
We have a right to know what chemicals we are being exposed to in order to avoid ingredients that may cause allergic reactions or more serious harm. That’s why Congress must pass the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act. Knowledge is power and without this information it’s nearly impossible to avoid harmful ingredients. 

Please send a message asking your representative to support your right to know by co-sponsoring the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act.
