There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market in the United States, most of them put directly into use without testing the long-term consequences for our health or their impact on our environment.

PIRG is working to protect our health by making polluters pay for the toxic messes they create, and eliminating the use of toxic chemicals that threaten our health and our communities.

Priorities

Clean water

Together we can protect the waterways that sustain our communities and our health.

Pesticides

The chemicals used to grow our food and maintain our parks and playgrounds are putting our health at risk.

Toxic threats

The chemicals used in everything from perfumes to cleaners to fertilizers should make our lives better — not harm our health or our environment.
