Jessica Alba, starlet, mother of two, political activist, and guest blogger for the Huffington Post (yup, really!), is taking a stand about the dangerous, toxic chemicals that lurk in your shower curtain. Check out Alba’s plea to America after the jump.
Thursday is a big day for those of us who care about protecting American families from toxic chemicals. The U.S. Senate will be holding a hearing on ‘The Safe Chemicals Act’ … The bill, a much-needed overhaul of our antiquated laws, will help us all protect our families from toxic chemicals. I just gave birth to my second child, and I can tell you that there is no stronger instinct for a mom then wanting to protect her kids and keep them safe … Parents are often shocked to find out that there are dangerous chemicals in their child’s plastic baby bottles, toys, baby soap, shower curtains, and even in their crib mattresses. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. That’s why parents are demanding action from Congress now.
Eek! I have no children to protect, but I may have to take down my shower curtain when I get home. Who knew? Thank you, Jessica. You’ve appealed to my sense of … neurosis. [Huffington Post]
