Take Action

Tell the EPA to ban the use of methylene chloride and NMP in commercial and consumer paint strippers. Let’s protect workers and consumers from these harmful chemicals and switch to safer alternatives.

Toxies Red Carpet Party

August 21, 2012
Tampa, Florida

Time: 6:30 pm
Location:
Crown Plaza Tampa, 5303 West Kennedy Blvd
Suggested donation: $20
RSVP: marybeth@psrflorida.org by Aug. 17th

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.
