Join the fun at the Toxies, the premier satirical "Red Carpet" awards ceremony for toxic chemicals. We'll boo them on as bad actor chemicals parade down the red carpet and receive their Toxie Award. Come dressed as the toxic chemical you love to hate the most. (Costumes are not mandatory.) Appetizers will be served and a cash bar available. Sponsored by PSR/Florida.
The Toxies is a year-round popular education campaign to educate and mobilize the public for action against toxic chemicals and pollutants. From our workplaces, homes, and communities, we can take small everyday steps, but we ultimately need policy change to fix the broken system that allows our bodies and planet to be contaminated without consent.
Tell your senators you want true health-protective chemical policy reform, not industry-driven proposals like the Vitter-Udall bill.
Oppose fast-track legislation that opens the door wider for trade deals that would invalidate many health-protective laws and regulations.
