Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

UPDATED October 2018

Galaxolide is a synthetic musk, and is a commonly used fragrance ingredient in household products. This chemical is highly toxic to aquatic life and studies show it may interfere with hormones and other chemical signals in our bodies, which can result in developmental, reproductive, metabolic, brain, and behavior problems.

See GreenScreen® assessment of Galaxolide.

Galaxolide* is widely used by SC Johnson & Son and can be found in their numerous scented products including their Glade®, Scrubbing Bubbles®, Pledge®, Windex® and Shout!® brands. SC Johnson is one of just six manufacturers in the United States named by the EPA that is importing and using this high production volume (HPV) chemical.
