No state in the country has more potential for wind and solar energy production than Texas. We already lead the nation in wind, and solar is expanding rapidly. Wind and solar energy helps us conserve water in Texas because they do not require the vast amounts of water that conventional forms of energy production demand. Don’t let the State Legislature move us backward!
Last year's chemical spill into the Elk River in West Virginia, coal ash spill in the Dan River near Danville, and train derailment into the James River in Lynchburg prove that accidents happen. The risks posed by toxics jeopardize the quality of our water sources and our health.

It is time for the cleaning products industry to stop hiding their dirty secrets. Many of the most common household cleaners contain dangerous chemicals linked to cancer, birth defects, asthma, and other serious health problems. They also pollute our waterways and air.

Contact your State Assemblymember today and tell them to vote for AB 708 (Jones-Sawyer). Demand the right to know what chemicals are in your cleaning products. Click here to send a message!
