YES! LOBLAW PHASES OUT MICROBEADS, HARMFUL CHEMICALS TRICLOSAN, PHTHALATES

National retailer Loblaw announced plans to eliminate triclosan, phthalates and microbeads from its store brands. This is great news for consumers! Triclosan is a known hormone disruptor, phthalates have been linked to cancer, and microbeads are threatening our lakes and aquatic life.

However, more than voluntary industry action is needed. We also need clear labeling laws so Canadians can know what’s in the products they buy.

VICTORY FOR OUR BEES: ONTARIO IS ENACTING TOUGHER RULES ON NEONICS Thanks to thousands of people speaking out for bees, Ontario is now the first province or state in North America to restrict the use and sale of bee-killing pesticides, known as neonics. This wouldn’t have been possible without your help. Thank you for helping to save the bees!
HOW DO THE FEDERAL PARTIES COMPARE ON CLIMATE? Environmental Defence launched a new scorecard last week comparing the federal parties’ commitments on climate change and the approach each would take at the U.N. climate summit in Paris in December. With the upcoming federal election, it’s critical for all parties to show what kind of leadership they will bring to the Paris talks. Tell our federal party leaders to be climate leaders.
