At Clean and Healthy New York, we believe that it is only by working together that we will win a safer, healthier future. Here are some of the ways we collaborate:
Safeguarding the natural environment can't be separated from promoting social justice. All people have a right to a world free of exposure to harmful chemicals in our air, water and food, where children grow up healthy with every opportunity to thrive. Bringing together more than 50 organizations and individuals in New York state, the JustGreen Partnership seeks to build a healthy economy that provides good jobs producing clean products and services, in which our workplaces, schools, homes, communities and bodies are free of toxic chemicals.
SaferStates is a network of diverse environmental health coalitions and organizations in states around the country that share a bold and urgent vision.
We believe families, communities, and the environment should be protected from the devastating impacts of our society’s heavy use of chemicals. We believe that new state and national chemical policies will contribute to the formation of a cleaner, greener economy. While national chemical policy reform is urgently needed, state-based coalitions and groups around the country are stepping up to protect citizens from toxic threats.
The Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition represents more than 11 million individuals and includes parents, health professionals, advocates for people with learning and developmental disabilities, reproductive health advocates, environmentalists and businesses from across the nation.
Our coalition of diverse groups is united by their common concern about toxic chemicals in our homes, places of work, and products we use every day.
The Alliance for Toxic-Free Fire Safety is a diverse coalition of groups dedicated to improving public health and safety by advocating for non-toxic alternatives to hazardous and untested chemicals. More and more people are concerned about hazardous flame retardants in everyday consumer products. Some flame retardants are considered carcinogenic and yet the public is widely exposed to them. Another flame retardant chemical, very similar to one removed from children’s pajamas, has resurfaced in other goods made for kids. What’s going on?
The Alliance for Toxic-Free Fire Safety supports the use of non-hazardous fire safety techniques. Supporters of the Alliance for Toxic-Free Fire Safety believe we need new laws and practices at the state and federal level to ensure the safety of all chemicals.
