Senator Lautenberg Introduces Safe Chemicals Act

Last week I attended a meeting regarding a Town Meeting warrant article that would require bio-degradable packaging for Wellfleet. The article was based on legislation enacted by Nantucket. Lydia Vivante, Chair of the Recycling Commission, led the discussion. This warrant article seems quite timely, for yesterday Senator Frank Lautenberg, of New Jersey, brought before Congress a bill called Safe Chemicals Act of 2011. Readers of this blog have often listened to my arguments in favor of the regulation of toxic chemicals in the environment. Now, it's time to do something about the situation. I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to support the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011. Please watch this video and spread the word. Thanks!
