Flame Retardant Makers and Their Three StoogesBy Ali Geering-Kline
What do the Three Stooges have to do with harmful chemicals in our furniture and baby products? If you’ve been following our blogs and the coverage of harmful flame retardants in the news lately, you know that the chemical companies that make flame retardants–namely Albermarle, Israeli Chemical Limited, and Chemtura–have their own 3 stooges fighting tooth and nail to keep their harmful products in our homes.

Watch our hilarious video to see why flame retardant chemical makers and the 3 Stooges have so much in common!
