common scented products emit toxics

Manufacturers are not required to disclose any ingredients in cleaning supplies, air fresheners or laundry products.

1) “The products emitted more than 420 chemicals, collectively, but virtually none of them were disclosed to consumers, anywhere.”

2) “We analyzed best-selling products, and about half of them made some claim about being green, organic or natural. Surprisingly, the green products’ emissions of hazardous chemicals were not significantly different from the other products.”

3) “More than a third of the products emitted at least one chemical classified as a probable carcinogen.”

4) “The 25 commonly used scented products emit an average of 17 chemicals each. Of the 133 different chemicals detected, nearly a quarter are classified as toxic or hazardous under at least one federal law.”
