Disney: Get Toxic Chemicals out of your Lunch Boxes!

Following the recently published study from the Center for Health, Environment & Justice that  found, among other things, that all of the children’s lunch boxes tested contained up to 30 times the amount of toxic dust deemed safe by the federal government, a mother decided to start a petition on asking Disney to be a leader for children's health and stop using dangerous phthalates in their products now (to read more on the study read our blog post :  Back To School Guide For Non-Toxic Munchkins)

Disney’s lunch boxes were some of the worst offenders. Their lunchboxes tested, which specifically featured Spiderman and Disney Princesses, some of their most beloved characters coveted by so many of our munchkins  -  could be shedding toxic chemicals and putting our  kids at risk of hormonal, behavioral and developmental health issues.

What is worse is that an alternatives exist. As the petition points out, Disney could choose tomorrow to make their products safer. While Congress works on long-term solutions like the Safe Chemicals Act, corporations like Disney have a responsibility to keep our kids safe now.

 If you want to sign this petition, just click and include your name and contact information (you can choose to keep it private )... it will only take 30 seconds and could potentially make a huge difference!!
