Chemicals aren’t Clean!

How to support Congress’ passage of the Household Product Labeling Act of 2009!

Did you know that chemical companies, cough, I mean cleaning products companies don’t have to say what they put in their toxic laboratory-birthed neon “cleaning” products?

Here’s Method‘s “Shiny Suds” video spoof of…”a cleaning product commercial in which a mom gets a nasty shock in her shower from some creepy animated cleaning characters.”

“Method’s campaign offers a call to action for viewers to support the Household Product Labeling Act of 2009, a bill that has been introduced in Congress and would require household cleaning products to be clearly labeled with complete ingredient disclosure. Method supports this bill and encourages companies to be transparent in their product labeling.

The video is meant to be entertaining while also provoking viewers to think about the chemicals they are using and breathing while cleaning. Many of us are simply not aware that traditional cleaners are full of ingredients that are harmful to the environment and potentially harmful for ourselves and our families.”

    I hope that this campaign, coinciding with 7th Generation's "Million Baby Crawl" will show congress consumers mean business!
