Today is Earth Day, a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the environment. This year Earth Day celebrates its 40th Anniversary.
Though out today people are asked to do their part for the environment, be it recycling, reducing their use of water, or walking instead of driving somewhere. In addition to those things you can do something from your computer that will not only be good for the environment but also for families.
Legislation has been introduced that will overhaul the nation’s chemical laws. The Safe Chemicals Act is landmark legislation that will reform the way the government protects families from toxic chemicals. Through the bill, there will be better information to businesses and individuals so they can avoid toxic chemicals in every day products.
Please contact your members of Congress today and urge them to support the Safe Chemicals Act.
