Disney: Get toxic chemicals out of Princess and Spiderman lunch boxes
Phthalates are toxic chemicals already banned from children's toys because we know they're dangerous to kids. But they aren't yet banned from all products intended for kids: It turns out phthalates can be found in many back-to-school products as well, including lunch boxes and backpacks! This year, an independent study found levels of phthalates in Disney-licensed lunch boxes that would be illegal if these products were toys. In fact, these lunch boxes had levels 20 times higher than the legal toy phthalates limit!
Kids and cartoons? Classic. Kids and chemicals? Not so much.
Join us and our organizational partners to tell Disney to do the right thing for kids and take toxic chemicals out of their lunch boxes!
