Ask Lawmakers to Stand Up for Your Health, Not Billion Dollar Food Manufacturers!
This morning I was at the State House with my son Jasiah and spoke at a press conference with two other moms, Bettie and Megan (see photo). Today we celebrated the new Maine law to phase-out BPA in infant food and formula packaging (thanks to your support), but we still have work to do and won’t stop till all food packaging is BPA-free.
Do you think major food manufacturers should be allowed to keep the public in the dark about whether or not they’re using BPA in their packaging?
LD 1181, our Healthy Kids Bill, would finally require the biggest food manufacturers to report whether they use BPA and other priority chemicals in their food packaging, and finally provide all Maine families with this critical information. We need your support to get it passed by the Maine Legislature this month!
With a veto from Governor Lepage a likely possibility, we need every legislator possible in our corner. You can help by contacting YOUR legislators today and ask them to support LD 1181 - The Healthy Kids bill.
Want to have a bigger impact? Take an extra minute to personalize your letter, sharing why YOU want BPA-free food, then forward this action to colleagues, family, and friends and ask them to take action as well. We need 2/3 vote of both house and senate to discourage, and override, a possible Governor's veto.
I will keep you posted on our progress. Thanks again for your support!
