Hormone disruptors

People are exposed to hormone-disrupting chemicals each day through everyday consumer products.


Did you know that synthetic chemicals are all around us in modern society? These chemicals, which can be found in various consumer products like cleaning items, electronics, and ordinary furniture, expose us to potential risks. Pregnant women, in particular, face significant concerns as many chemicals can be transferred from mother to child through the placenta and breast milk. Even at low levels, synthetic chemicals may disrupt fetal development. Exposures during this crucial period can have adverse health consequences throughout the child’s life and may even impact future generations.

Let’s not put the chemical crisis off to the next generation.

We call on policy makers in the EU to take action against toxic chemicals in our nature, air, water and bodies. We ask them to:

  • Fully implement the European Union’s promises on its Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability to ensure a toxic-free Europe by 2030
  • A special focus must be to fix the outdated chemicals control law, REACH, to ensure the fast track banning of the most harmful chemicals in consumer products
  • Fully implement the European Union’s action plan to phase out PFAS, including support and facilitate the universal ban of PFAS as well as banning PFAS in sectoral legislations such as toys, cosmetics, packaging and food contact materials.
  • Aid communities affected by forever chemical pollution and ensure thorough monitoring, remediation, ground sanitation, health and other plans in response to their needs. Make polluting PFAS manufacturers and related companies accountable for these.

This petition is done together with several European environmental organisations.
