A Message From Green Living Super Mom and Star, Jessica Alba, "Take action today and ask your Senators to support the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011! "
I have loved Jessica Alba since her days back in 2000 as the genetically tricked out, bad ass soldier girl, Max Guevara in Dark Angel.  She went around doing all sorts of crazy crap and going on wild missions trying to find her genetically modified brothers and sisters.  All of this while trying to evade recapture by the government.  My hubby and I loved that show.  I still have no idea why it was canceled.  Anytime I can watch something with a chick kicking booty it is all good with me and Big Bad Dad.  Plus, you have to love looking at Jessica Alba right?  And Michael Weatherly, who played Max's wheelchair bound love interest in the show (isn't he on NCIS now?), is a hottie too!!   

yummy
Anyhoo, Jessica is still making the top of my list as a super green super mom by advocating on behalf of Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families.  She is calling all moms to join her.  After all, it's the hand that rocks the cradle that rules the world right?

Dear Shane,
Today I am excited to announce my partnership with the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition to stand up for America’s moms and ask for common sense limits on toxic chemicals. I’m asking for your help today to send a clear message to Congress: toxic chemicals don’t belong in our homes, bodies and environment.

As I’m pregnant with my second child, I have been thinking back to the days when my husband and I decided to start a family, nearly four years ago. Just the thought of bringing a child into this world prompted a long list of things to think about: am I getting enough folic acid? Am I eating enough fruits and vegetables? What baby proofing will we need to do to ensure our house is the safest environment for our new baby?


I quickly learned that it is impossible to “baby proof” your house from toxic chemicals. They’re common ingredients in products we all use, even some that are designed especially for infants like cribs and nursing pillows. Just like you, I was alarmed to learn that it is perfectly legal to use these chemicals in our everyday consumer goods.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not ok with that. As a matter of fact, I think it’s time we take action together and stand up for a healthier tomorrow.


These concerns were the catalyst behind my partnership with the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families coalition. Together we are fighting for a strong federal system to put common sense limits on toxic chemicals.

Take action today and ask your Senators to support the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011. It's a new bill that would increase the safety of chemicals used in your consumer products, increase public access to health and safety information, and protect vulnerable populations like pregnant women and children.
Take action today and ask your Senators to support the Safe Chemicals Act of 2011!

Today, I am in Washington D.C. to meet with key Members of Congress and ask them to co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act. Will you join me in showing Congress that American moms care about this issue?

"You GO Girl!" Jessica on Capitol Hill
The road to change is sometimes long and we’ll need you to stick with us in this fight for safer chemicals and healthy families. We need a steady drumbeat of American moms telling Congress to fight for the safety of your family. Join me today in asking Congress for common sense limits on toxic chemicals.

Sincerely,
Jessica Alba
