Prime Minister
United Kingdom

A huge body of international scientific evidence now links exposure to Fire Retardant Chemicals used in sofas, mattresses and other household items to lower birth weight, reduced IQ, hyperactivity, poorer coordination, reduced fertility, birth defects, hormonal changes and cancer.

It particularly affects children and research has also shown the harmful impact on animal life and the environment.

We, the undersigned, call on the Prime Minister and the UK Government to take immediate action to withdraw and ban untested and toxic Fire Retardant Chemicals used in the furniture industry in the UK and promote safer, natural fire retardant products in their place.
