Robyn Griggs Lawrence thumbnailLabel-reading, internet-scouring, baking soda-packing moms are a major challenge to the chemical industry’s failed business model of adding unsafe, untested chemicals to the products we use in our homes and on our bodies every day, the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition states. This hilarious video—an ode to mothers who are willing to ask the tough questions about chemicals—puts it all in perspective. I laughed out loud when the chemical industry rep called Wal-Mart a “stupid hippie store.”

“Moms have done more to make the world a safer place from toxic chemicals than any member of Congress or president has been able to do,” Safer Chemicals, Happy Families states. “But now it’s time for Congress and the President to start working in partnership with the mothers of America. It’s our dream that Congress would take a cue from smart, forceful moms who just won’t tolerate the chemical industry’s tactics of delay and denial.”

Please watch and share this laugh-out-loud video, then join the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families campaign.
