Urge Your Daycare to Become Bisphenol-A FREE!

Ontario, Canada:
Dalton McGuinty, the Premier of Ontario, is considering banning Bisphenol A in the Province of Ontario."Why is it that at the beginning of the 21st century one in four Ontarians are dying of cancer?" "We need to do a better job of understanding the influence of these chemicals toxins and carcinogens in our environment and our quality of life." Rick Smith of Environmental Defense said "It's just ridiculous that we have baby bottles sold that have known hormone-disrupting chemical in it."

Babies and children can be exposed to bisphenol A at their daycare centres.
That’s why the Environmental Defence is urging daycare centres to become bisphenol A-free."

You can help.
Urge your children’s daycare centre to go bisphenol A-free. 
Here is a sample letter composed by the Environmental Defence 
that you can give your childcare provider. 

Daycare Centers and Providers should send a letter to their suppliers
asking them to eliminate toy, food and beverage products that contain bisphenol A.
