In our fourth annual report card on safer chemicals in consumer products, the Mind the Store campaign found that some major retailers are making meaningful progress in improving the chemical safety of the products and packaging they sell. Still, about one-third of the companies evaluated failed to make the grade.
In this report analyzing the public policies of 43 major retail companies, you can learn about our assessment of which of those retailers are leading the market movement to safer chemicals, how retailers can continue to implement and expand corporate chemical policies, and which of those retailers are lagging behind the others.
You can use this report to help inform which companies you’ll support and those that you will avoid this holiday season. For the evaluated companies that are lagging behind the others, leverage the power of the purse and join us in raising your voice to call for urgent reform. You can use our “take action” feature to write to the fourteen companies that make up our 2019 Retailer Report Card Toxic Hall of Shame. You can also send customized tweets to each of the 43 companies, thanking those that have been improving and urging the laggards to step up.
Navigate through the retailers and report links on the right and key resources below to review how each company scored and read the report’s executive summary, key findings, recommendations, and more.
Together, we can hold big corporations accountable and drive a race to the top in the retail sector to ensure the stores we shop at “mind the store.”
