Chemical policy reform webinar

About the webinar

Why did an entrepreneur have to start his own toxic-free mattress company? Why does a health care company care about how chemicals are regulated? Join us for a free webinar and hear from two companies that support better chemicals regulation to meet their business needs.

There is broad agreement that the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) fails to address the interests of companies seeking to meet consumer demand for safer products without the use of harmful chemicals. American businesses are recognizing that safer chemicals reduce the costs of regulation, hazardous waste storage and disposal, worker protection, and future liabilities, while supporting values of protecting human and environmental health.
