We protect families from toxic chemicals to promote products that are safe for public health and the environment.
CEH works to hold corporations accountable for their use of toxic chemicals that endanger public health. We challenge corporations to stop polluting or to lower the toxicity of their consumer products. We motivate change by outreach, education, and when necessary, legal action under California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (otherwise known as “Proposition 65”). We test everyday children's and consumer products for harmful toxics like lead, cadmium, phthalates, and others.
