Context of Proposition 65 Warning of the State of California
With the environmentalists call for a safe environment to protect the earth and its inhabitants, consumers are getting more aware on the materials or ingredients used on creating products. One such item category that was given much attention is furniture. Others may not know it but the furniture materials like wood dust, PVC, brass or other compounds present on household items and furniture are harmful to us. These brought several associations to organize their own campaign to check on this matter.
Upholding their goal of protecting their citizens from consumer products' issues, the state of California has implemented the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act. Also known as the "Proposition 65", its initial objective is to safeguard all sources of drinking water from chemical contaminants. The extent of the law has expanded for the past years. Places like the parking areas, hospitals, schools, hardware stores, parks and any respectable business establishments have placed warning signs. Under the Proposition 65 Law, all products should have warning labels.
To protect consumers, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) issued a list of carcinogen or reproductive toxicants consisting of more than 800 chemical elements. Some of the elements in the list include wood dust, PVC, brass and other common compounds that endanger lives. Other compounds included in the Proposition 65 list of harmful elements are present in common commodities like: beauty products, ceramic table ware, lead crystal glasses, electric cords, jewelries, lamps, vehicles and even furniture.
Bath and Bath upholds the Proposition 65 law of California. Our customers are our responsibility and have the right to information; and it is our desire to protect them from any danger. There is always a possibility that wood dust and other elements included in the Proposition 65 list may be present on our furniture or packing materials that we offer to our customers. To forewarn our customers, we have included the required precise phrasing of the State of California in all our bathroom items, which is: "CA Prop 65".
For the safety of our customers, we want to assure them by giving them the correct information about the Proposition.
Although the warning label is a requirement in the state of California, Bath and Bath deemed it necessary to put the link to this page on every footer of our website. Our concern does not limit us to people in California but all over the country. Our furniture products reach out to all states in the continental United States and placing the sign to all our items is our way of showing that we care for our customers and our way of thanking them for their continued patronage.
