If your household products were exposing you or your children to toxic chemicals that could potentially cause cancer or reproductive damage, shouldn't you have the right to know? We believe you should. We're Toxic-Free Canada, the new voice of the Labour Environmental Alliance Society (LEAS). We believe that the right to know is a fundamental right — and with it, the power to change.
That's why we're working with other groups and campaigning for federal right-to-know legislation that would require ingredient and hazard labelling for household products. We believe that any hazardous ingredients, such as carcinogens or reproductive toxins, should be identified, so that consumers can make informed choices.
You Can Help!
Join our right to know campaign and work with us to create a Toxic Free Canada. Take action by signing up to our newsletters or hot list so you can keep up to date on what's happening with legislation, new product research, or what's up in your community. If you care but don't have time to get involved, you could support us with a gift or monthly donation. Even joining our mailing lists helps us receive additional funding from our sponsors.
To find out what's in your household products, order our CancerSmart Consumer Guide, also available in french entitled Diminuez les risques de cancer : guide du consommateur averti.
