Clean Water Action will be proposing legislation in the 2017 Rhode Island General Assembly session that will provide full transparency for consumers without requiring formulations or creating conflicts with current law. The measure would require disclosure of all ingredients on the manufacturer’s web site without having specific amounts or combinations revealed; just a list of everything contained in the product so people can make an informed choice about the personal care products they use.
Clean Water Action is currently hiring field community organizers to work on local grassroots campaigns to protect the health, economy, environment and livelihood of communities.
