Concerned parents reached out successfully to politicians! Questions will follow in Dutch House of Commons.

A collection of green parent initiatives, supported by WECF, calling themselves Mama Green presented toxic free gifts to raise awareness on the fact that consumerproducts and food, meant for children, still too often contain too high doses of hazardous substances or endocrine disrupting substances (EDCs). Promises were made that Questions would be raised in Parliament during Question Time.  WECF would like to thank the politicians who accepted our inviation: Joel Voordewind, Carla Dik-Faber, Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, Pieter Heerma, Pieter Omtzigt, Liesbeth van Tongeren, Marianne Thieme,  Marit Maij, Loes Ypma and Lutz Jacobi.
