IF YOU ONLY HAVE TIME TO DO ONE THING TODAY
An extensive and growing body of scientific evidence shows that ground level ozone, or smog, causes measurable, serious health impacts at levels commonly found in metropolitan areas across the U.S. That’s why EPA has proposed to tighten allowable levels of smog from 75 parts per billion (ppb), our current standard, to a range of 65-70 ppb.In order to truly protect children’s lungs, the national standard for smog should be set at 60 ppb. Tell the EPA you support stronger protections against smog pollution.Take Action Now!

TELL THE SENATE TO END TAX BREAKS FOR OIL, GAS AND COAL

URGE PRESIDENT OBAMA TO STOP THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE
The Keystone pipeline encourages the development for many decades of Alberta’s tar sands, some of the dirtiest fuel on the planet. The United States can, and must, refuse to be complicit–refuse to be a partner–in harvesting this filthy fuel. Keystone is about yesterday’s power. We must focus–as engineers, economists, and parents and consumers–on tomorrow’s power. Please tell President Obama to stop the Keystone pipeline.Send a Message

TELL EBAY TO PULL OUT OF ALEC
eBay is a corporate member of ALEC, a group that has declared it is launching “a political tsunami against EPA,” and engaging in “guerilla tactics” to undermine health protective limits on greenhouse gas pollution. Many companies, like Facebook,Pepsi, Kraft, GM, Yelp and Yahoo, have pulled out of ALEC. eBay needs to stop putting their profits ahead of the health of our families. Please tell eBay you won’t give them one more penny as long as they continue to fund climate deniers.Send a Message
TELL YOUR SENATORS: PROTECT OUR FAMILIES FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS
Our current chemical safety law, the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976, is badly broken. It allows chemicals onto the market without adequate safety testing. We think it’s time to change that. Tell your Senators to support strong legislation that truly protects vulnerable populations, such as babies and children, from the health effects of toxic chemical exposures.Send a Message
Tell BABIES”R”US: STOP SELLING TOXIC CHEMICALS
Chemicals used widely in consumer products have been linked to a range of health problems, such as asthma, learning disabilities, diabetes, obesity, and reproductive problems. Lax federal laws keep potentially toxic chemicals in our products – but retailers like Babies”R”Us can do better. Tell Babies”R”Us to protect children’s health by requiring that suppliers use the safest materials available. Tell Toys”R”Us/Babies”R”Us CEO Antonio Urcelay that it’s time take action on toxic chemicals.
