Hey Target, Mind the Store!

We've asked the nation's top ten retailers to get tough on toxic chemicals, but we haven't heard a peep from Target—what's the deal?

Target has made some steps in the right direction like eliminating polyvinyl chloride (PVC) from store-brand children's products like lunch-boxes, eating utensils, and baby bibs, and reducing PVC in packaging and other products like shower curtains, table linens, and soft coolers.

But, there's a lot more work to do. In fact,
four of the worst products from HealthyStuff.org's screening of picnic products are from Target.com.

Target is one of the largest "superstore" retailers in the country, with over 1,700 stores. They can make a HUGE difference in making the products we bring into our homes (or along with us on our picnics) safer.

Let Target know you want them to get serious about creating a robust action plan on the Hazardous 100+ toxic chemicals. Join us and ask their CEO, Gregg W. Steinhafel and their sustainability team to take action!
