In 2006, the University of California sent the report, “Green Chemistry in California: A Framework for Leadership in Chemicals Policy and Innovation,” to the California legislature. The report inspired Cal/EPA Secretary Linda Adams to launch the Green Chemistry Initiative (GCI), a set of legislation designed to fundamentally change California’s approach to environmental protection and reduce or eliminate toxic chemicals from use.
American from toxic chemicals. This is simply the best opportunity we have ever had to pass tough federal reforms that will keep toxic chemicals out of our lives for generations to come.
A bill that’s now taking shape in Congress will affect the way that businesses for years to come are allowed to expose us all to toxic chemicals that can cause cancer and other health threats.
