We know that little things add up.
Repeated exposures to small amounts of toxic chemicals can cause serious harm to the developing brain. These exposures add up to and negatively impact the health and wellbeing of families and communities, but also GDP and earning potential for generations.
But in the same way, small actions, taken together, can create lasting change. Our reports and programs—and the public awareness they have generated—empower parents to keep their children safe, pressure companies to make changes, and encourage government action at both federal and city levels.
Many exposures to harmful chemicals are preventable and need not affect babies’ health and futures. By taking small, meaningful steps toward reducing exposures, we can dramatically improve health outcomes and quality of life for all children.
