The Shorty Interview with Safer Chemicals

What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?

Take action on the issues they care about and directly tweet at their Senators about passing the #SafeChemicalsAct

Why should people follow you?

Activism consists of efforts to change the status quo, knowing that we can do better to protect our health, community, environment than we are right now.  Our campaign has taken a complex issue that very few knew about, and we made it mainstream.  As a result, we’ve engaged millions of supporters across sectors, from public health to environment, Members of Congress, bloggers and celebrities.  Unregulated chemicals in our food, sofas, and baby bottles (to name a few) are hurting people and we can do something about it by passing the #SafeChemicalsAct.

What inspires you to tweet?

Our friends are being diagnosed with cancer in their twenties, pregnant women have hundreds of toxic chemicals in their bodies and early puberty being called "the new normal." We are inspired to tweet by the moral and urgent need to get tough on unregulated, toxic chemicals in the products we use everyday.

Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
