This Valentine’s Day we are asking Disney to have a heart and we need your help. As many of you know, I started a petition asking Disney to remove toxic chemicals found in their Spiderman and princess lunch boxes. This is a guest post from our friends at the Center for Health, Environment & Justice, the incredible organization behind the study that revealed high levels of toxic chemicals in children’s lunch boxes.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. This Valentine’s will be a great opportunity for you to show your love for a toxic-free future.
Disney is the largest licenser of consumer products in the world, and our recent investigation found that many Disney branded school supplies are filled with high levels of toxic phthalates. Phthalates are so toxic they’ve been banned in toys and have been linked to asthma, birth defects and ADHD.
These chemicals have no place in our children’s Disney school supplies. Join us in telling Disney to make our dreams come true this Valentine’s Day – no more toxic school supplies!
TAKE ACTION: Send a Valentine to Disney and show your affection for a healthier world. Here’s how:

Yours for a toxic-free Disney,
