Why We Care:

When healthy, children are better students, workers are more productive, costs are reduced, and families and business can thrive.

We can make sure the chemicals used in consumer products are safe, adequately tested, and part of a full and complete system of product reuse and recycling. We can improve the quality and safety of our air and water so they can continue to support good health and the many recreational opportunities enjoyed by Maine people and visitors. We can build our farm economy and develop new markets for organic and locally grown products that make it possible for every Maine family to have access to safe, healthy, and nutritious food. Working together, we can ensure safe resources, strong businesses, and healthy Maine people.
