WECF studies toxicity in children’s toys
WECF has been involved in a project to support toxic-free children’s toys and is a founding member of the Safe Toys Coalition that aims to protect children’s health by striving for a world free of toxic and unsafe toys. On 25 January they held a press conference at the European Parliament calling for toxic-free toys in the EU as well as for individuals to come and bring toys for testing.
WECF says there are indications that political will is increasing to enhance the European Toys Safety Directive, but many problems regarding chemicals in toys continue as no new measures appear to be being taken by the industry.
