Region 2 TCTAC WE ACT speaks to Inside Climate News about mercury in cosmetics

Inside Climate News spoke to Region 2 TCTAC WE ACT about a new law regulating mercurcy in cosmetics, and the outsized impact that the chemical has had on communities of color. Micaela E. Martinez, ecologist and director of environmental health at WE ACT, spoke to Inside Climate News about a meeting with Congressional staffers that she attended on the subject. “That staffer said that there were over 200 times that they know of, that the industry was talking to Congress and we had one,” Martinez said. “The industry lobbyists, that’s their whole job, right?” Environment Mag and Mother Jones shared the Inside Climate News report.
