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”). Examples of CEH’s successful lawsuits include getting metal plating companies to stop emitting dangerous chemicals into surrounding low-income neighborhoods, and forcing drug companies to take the lead out of their baby diaper rash cream.
