At Seventh Generation, we have been creating healthy products for more than 25 years by using plant-derived, bio-based ingredients that are not carcinogens, mutagens, neurotoxins, or otherwise chronically toxic. We have learned that we donít need toxic products to clean our homes well, and weíve learned how kind bio-based, VOC-free products are to our kids and pets. Besides making bio-based consumer products, Seventh Generation has been working passionately for years to eliminate exposure to toxic chemicals that harm human health by supporting sound state and federal toxics control legislation, and working with our industry to create safer, more sustainable products. Parents and families should not have to worry about toxic chemicals in their personal care and other household cleaning products.
If Boxer, Vitter and the committee feel the same way we do, they will work with the Democrats and Republicans who have already come together and find ways to strengthen and fix the Chemical Safety Improvement Act.
John Replogle is president and CEO of Seventh Generation.
