Washington Toxics Coalition
A nonprofit organization which works on toxins in products, neighborhoods, and ecosystems.
Washington Toxics Coalition protects public health and the environment by eliminating toxic pollution. WTC promotes alternatives, advocates policies, empowers communities, and educates people to create a healthy environment
The Washington Toxics Coalition (WTC) is a 30-year-old organization with a history of groundbreaking victories that protect human health and the environment in Washington State. Our goal is to eliminate the sources of toxic chemicals that threaten the health of Washingtonians and harm the environment using a strategic combination of original research, education, advocacy, media work, and organizing. We are proud of our recent accomplishments:
winning the strongest standards in the nation restricting toxic chemicals in children’s products and creating a framework for regulating toxics in all consumer products;
establishing local school and park policies in the Puget Sound area that phase out the most harmful pesticides and employ non-chemical methods of pest control.
passing landmark legislation banning toxic flame retardants (PBDEs) in consumer products; and
writing and releasing a report Earliest Exposures, that looked at the toxic chemicals present in the bodies of pregnant women to determine what chemicals the fetus is exposed to.
