We had the privilege to join Maya Rudolph and Senator Al Franken in DC to talk about the need for ingredient disclosure and the Cleaning Product Right to Know Act.
The lesson here is that we need mandatory ingredient disclosure through the passage of legislation that requires ALL companies to disclose in a uniform manner. Standardized disclosure will make it easier for buyers to find ingredient information, no matter the brand.
Women’s Voices for the Earth supports the recently introduced Cleaning Product Right to Know Act sponsored by New York Congressman Steve Israel (D-Huntington). The legislation requires ingredient labeling for household and institutional cleaning products. Under current U.S. law, cleaning products are not required to disclose ingredients.
Ever noticed that most cleaning product labels don't have ingredients listed?
People are used to being selective about what’s in food products; cleaning products need to be held to the same standards.
