Tell Menards to Ban Toxic Phthalates in Vinyl Flooring

Home Depot and Lowe’s recently committed to ban toxic phthalates in all vinyl flooring by the end of this year. If the nation’s top two home improvement chains can ban phthalates in flooring, so should Menard’s! Ask Menard’s to act today.

A new study found that tested vinyl flooring sold by Menards and other retailers contained phthalates, toxic chemicals that are banned in children’s toys.

Phthalate exposure is linked to serious health concerns: birth defects in baby boys, learning and behavioral problems and asthma in children. What’s worse -- phthalates don’t stay in flooring – they get into the air and dust we breathe in our homes, and then make their way into our bodies. A Minnesota house dust test found phthalates in every home tested.

Due to our work as part of the Mind the Store campaign, Home Depot and Lowe’s took an important step toward protecting public health.

Menards supports the war against women's rights and supports the American Legislative Exchange Council.

Hobby Lobby fits in this shoe as well....
