NGOs press US budget chain to pass chemicals policy

Chemical Watch | February 12, 2020

NGOs gathered yesterday to call on the budget chain 99 Cents Only Stores to follow the lead of its competitors and adopt a chemicals policy. Five years ago, the Campaign for Healthier Solutions – which is made up of over 100 health, community and environmental justice organisations nationwide – released a report that found over 81% of products in budget chains contain "hazardous substances", such as phthalates or heavy metals. And while 99 Cents Only Stores’ competitors Dollar Tree and Dollar General have since committed to phasing out more than 20 substances – including formaldehyde, toluene, triclosan and a number of parabens – the chain has not made a similar commitment.
