Chemicals & Health

WECF and its members advocate for non-chemical alternatives worldwide, based on three principles: polluter pays, reversal of the burden of proof and the precautionary principle, and will highlight the gaps and inadequacies in current legislation. WECF raises awareness amongst consumers and encourages them to ask questions about the products they allow into their homes. WECF does not only focus on toxic chemicals in consumer products. In Armenia, Kazakhstan and the Ukraine old pesticide stockpiles pose a serious threat to the environment and public health. Partner organizations try to attract attention to these problems and cooperate with the local and national authorities to isolate or remove the stockpiles and reduce the threat to humans, animals and the environment.
