Hundreds of babies are crawling to D.C. to urge Congress to overhaul America’s toxic chemical policy.

Each year, some 1.2 million children under six are unintentionally poisoned at home by everyday items including cleaning products.

The federal law intended to protect people from health-harming chemicals is not working and needs to be overhauled, says event sponsors, which include Seventh Generation. They also say, only 200 of some 800 chemicals require safety testing.

The Million Baby Crawl is one of more than a dozen evens across the country pushing for reform. To join the community to rally in support of the Toxic Substances Control Act reform visit www.millionbabycrawl.com.
