To be delivered to: U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)
According to a Chicago Tribune investigative series, “A deceptive campaign by the chemical industry brought toxic flame retardants into our homes and into our bodies. And the chemicals don't even work as promised.” Since 2008, the CPSC has been working on a draft furniture flammability standard that would stop fires from starting in furniture fabric. This new standard will prevent the use of untested and toxic chemicals in the foam inside furniture. We need the CPSC to enact this standard so we can buy furniture and baby products that are both fire resistant and toxics free.
