For the past 4 years, The Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow has been working to ban toxic flame retardants from:
- children’s products (products for children age 12 and under)
The Massachusetts Senate has twice passed a bill to ban flame retardants. The House has yet to bring the bill for a vote.
There are a multitude of reasons to eradicate flame retardants from our everyday lives, and protect the well-being of firefighters who put their lives on the line for us every day. California recently passed a comprehensive flame retardant ban. The Alliance hopes that Massachusetts will follow California’s lead when flame retardant legislation is re-introduced in January 2019.
