Toxic free gifts for Dutch parliamentarians

Concerned parents reached out successfully to Dutch politicians on the use of hazardous substances in toys.

A collection of green parent initiatives, supported by WECF, calling themselves Mama Green (www.mamagreen.nu) presented toxic free gifts to raise awareness of the fact that consumer products and food – intended for child consumption – still too often contain too high doses of hazardous substances or EDCs. Promises were made that questions would be asked in Parliament during ‘Question Time’.

WECF would like to thank the politicians who accepted the invitation: Joel Voordewind, Carla Dik-Faber, Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, Pieter Heerma, Pieter Omtzigt, Liesbeth van Tongeren, Marianne Thieme, Marit Maij, Loes Ypma and Lutz Jacobi.
