Great question! The new "TB 117- 2013" does not mean the furniture is 100% flame retardant free. Yes, they are following the new protocol which does not require flame retardants but unfortunately they may still use them. We recommend that you call the manufacturers to ensure that the furniture you'd like to purchase is 100% flame retardant free.
Thanks Rebecca, it's true that the chemical industry have really come to an all time low. It's a shame since the American public is a lot smarter than they think! I hope with your help we can bring the Safe Chemicals Act to the forefront of the Senate's agenda and meanwhile discredit phony attempts to calm parents' fears.
Hi Jean and Rebecca - we too are confident that public awareness and pressure will be the key to advancing our goals of safer chemicals and healthy families. If there is one very powerful tool we have in the U.S. it's the power of grassroots organizing. Thanks for being part of this growing movement.
Becki, we hope to see PA added to this list sometime soon! I suggest writing your local representatives to see if they are interested in carrying a bill such as these. Let us know what they say!

Laura, we couldn't agree more! We find it inspiring to see so many parents, young people and seniors taking their passion for safer chemicals to the streets. We hope Senator Burr will sign on soon to co-sponsor the Safe Chemicals Act in 2013!
