There’s been some progress made, but there are still a lot of toxic toys being sold that have unsafe levels of chemicals. U.S. PIRG is a non-profit advocate for consumers. They have done a lot of investigative research into children’s toys. The video below shows some of what they have found in tainted toys.
Even though the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (which provides stronger restrictions on lead and phthalates in children’s products), is a step in the right direction, there are still tens of thousands of unregulated toxic chemicals in children’s products.
At Healthy Child we believe there should be zero toxic chemicals in children’s toys. We are checking out a lot of toys and we now offer safe, non-toxic organic and natural toys.
