We're having a Twitter party! Please join us to tweet about toxic chemical reform!

Posted on May 5, 2011

Twitter party May 12th!With the Safe Chemicals Act just introduced in Congress, we thought it would be a good time to host a Twitter party on the topic of toxic chemicals! What’s a Twitter party, you ask? It’s basically a fast-paced, lively chat forum for educating and sharing ideas – all in 140 characters or less! At our Twitter party we will bring expert panelists together to answer your questions about toxic chemicals, show you how to protect your family and let you know why passage of the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011 is so critically important.

Here are the details – hope you can join us!

Date: Thursday, May 12th, 2011

Time: 9-10 PM Eastern/6-7 PM Pacific

Topic: Protecting Our Families from Toxic Chemicals

Key Questions Covered:

  • Why should we be concerned about chemicals in products we use every day?
  • What are the worst chemicals to avoid in products?
  • What can we do to avoid exposure to toxic chemicals?
  • How will the Safe Chemicals Act protect us?

RSVPing for the Protecting our Families from Toxic Chemicals Twitter Party. I was just interviewed on Patricia Raskin Positive Living this mothers day about the same topic. Informed the listening audience about saferchemicals.org for more information and action in support of the Safe Chemical Act of 2011. Let's start a revolution!
