Lead paint has been banned for household use in the U.S. since 1978 because the additive is a debilitating neurotoxin. But American companies Sherwin-Williams (Dutch Boy) and PPG (Glidden) still manufacture lead paint for export to more than 50 countries where there are no lead paint regulations. Yes, really.
According to a new petition on Change.org, lead exposures cause 674,000 deaths each year. They’re looking for just 500 signatures to ask Sherwin-Williams and PPG to stop making lead paint. Will you join me in adding your name?
