Here’s some great news – we’re winning the war to get toxic PVC out of packaging! Corporate America is waking up and driving more and more nails in the coffin of toxic PVC plastic.  In recent months, Johnson & Johnson, Procter & Gamble, and Clorox have all announced progress in phasing out the poison plastic in their packaging. CHEJ has been organizing to get PVC out of packaging for over 5 years now, and working with allies we have secured agreements from huge corporations to ditch PVC in favor of safer and healthier alternatives.  

Johnson & Johnson reported in their most recent report that they have “eliminated 84 percent of our secondary and tertiary PVC packaging across the company.” Procter and Gamble announced they’re committed to “entirely eliminating PVC packaging within two years.” Clorox announced they’re identifying “alternatives to PVC for all packaging.”

Do you hear that, Georgia Gulf & Formosa Plastics? That’s the market speaking!
