Support the BPA Free Kids Act

Support the BPA Free Kids Act!

A new study released last Wednesday found that 9 out of 10 babies tested were born with bisphenol-A (BPA) in their umbilical cord blood.

That's the same industrial chemical linked to cancer, onset diabetes, and obesity that is commonly found in baby bottles and sippy cups sold in Wisconsin.

Unbelievable! It's time to make Wisconsin BPA Free.

Support the BPA Free Kids Act here, and help us send a message to our state leaders that we want our babies to be BPA Free!

On Wednesday of this week, the state Assembly is hearing a bill that would ban BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups in Wisconsin!

Toxic chemicals have no place being in children's products. Bisphenol-A (BPA), an industrial chemical linked to cancer, early onset diabetes and obesity, is found in many baby bottles and sippy cups sold in Wisconsin. It leaches from these products and puts our children's development at risk.

The chemical industry and others with a financial stake in the chemical are continuing to argue that BPA is safe and trying to torpedo efforts to protect our kids. That's unacceptable.

Companies such as Nalgene, Playtex and Eden foods have all started using BPA-free alternatives. Wal-Mart and Toys "R" Us have also pledged to stop selling baby bottles containing BPA.

This summer, both Minnesota and Connecticut passed a ban on BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups. It's time for Wisconsin to do the same.

Support the BPA Free Kids Act here, and help us ban the manufacture and sale of bisphenol-A in children's bottles and cups.
