Every Crawler Counts

This month, our friends at Seventh Generation launched the Million Baby Crawl , a new initiative to engage consumers in support of reforming the nation’s toxic chemical laws.

Million Baby Crawl is a virtual rally in which cyber babies descend on Washington, D.C. to make a stink (get it?) about all the toxic chemicals invading their bodies. At www.millionbabycrawl.com , you can create your very own crawler, watch videos of babies pontificating atop soap-boxes (like the one below), and spread the word. Every crawler represents a virtual signature on a petition which will be delivered to Washington, D.C. in January, 2010.

The federal law that should protect us from health-harming chemicals just doesn’t work: Since 1976, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has required safety testing on only 200 of the more than 80,000 chemicals on the market. We need a stronger chemical law to keep our families (and our environment) safe and healthy.

Seventh Generation has partnered with Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families , a growing and diverse coalition that includes nurses, parents, scientists, environmentalists and citizens from across the country who are united by their concern about toxic chemicals in our homes, workplaces and products we use every day.
