 The issue, assembled over a year long period advances a bold new vision and approach to solving the problem of toxic chemicals and their adverse impacts.  Through a collection of twelve articles, the issue brings together leading voices from academia, labor, environmental and public health organizations, and businesses to highlight the widely agreed-upon need for the development and use of safer chemicals in our modern society. The authors illustrate how forward-thinking organizations are already successfully working toward this objective by changing policy, shifting markets, building new coalitions, and transforming science.
