Dangerous Toxins: Petition to Remove them from Everyday Products
Did you know that very well-known companies, whose products that you buy at stores every day, use dangerous chemicals in some of their products?

One such company that has recently felt the consumer push-back and has removed such chemicals from their products is Johnson & Johnson.

Some companies are not even required to include ingredients on their products, including feminine hygiene products.

Do you know what may be in your tampons or pads?

Mom blogger and consumer advocate, Leah Segedie, joins Andrea and Lisa to help provide options to affect change in the right direction, including switching to organic companies that provide full disclosure of ingredients and stepping up and demanding change from the large well-known brands.
