Product ingredients like triclosan in soap are supposed to kill germs. But a report released today by CELA & CPA comes clean about how toxic triclosan is to our health and the Great Lakes!
TEA's Green Action Agenda is already targeting the City of Toronto for swift action on toxic substances like triclosan.
We're evaluating municipal candidates on their commitments to detox Toronto's air & water. We are asking them to add Chemicals of Emerging Concern (CECs) like triclosan to the Sewers By-law in 2015. This way, new chemical threats are monitored, polluters are fined, and toxic reduction plans are developed to protect Lake Ontario!
