Great news for California today. The senate health committee voted 6-3 to approve the “Toxin-Free Toddlers and Babies Act,” by Senator Carole Midgen.

The bill bans any detectable level of the toxic chemical bisphenol A (BPA) from all toys and child care products sold in California. Bisphenol A is a widely used synthetic chemical and a key ingredient in plastics, including baby bottles, formula cans and the lining of other canned products.

Eight other states are moving legislation to do the same. If you don’t think that writing to your local senator makes a difference, this is proof.
