1. The Toxic Free Campaign

Established 2010, Safe Cosmetics Australia fulfilled a gap in the health and beauty industries launching "The Toxic Free Campaign" that address two key areas of toxic chemical use, found in personal care and household products.

Our mission is to:

Raise chemical awareness;

Advocate for a pre-market regulatory scheme;

Verify products that are Australian Certified Toxic-Free ®
and MADE SAFE Nontoxic Certified™

2. STOP the OBAMA WAR

The US government lied that Saddam Hussein had chemical weapons and attacked Iraq, today thousands and thousands of Iraqis are killed every year because of that lie.

The US supported Islamists rebels that killed Kadaffi, today, Libyans are being killed everyday at a level where there is no solution to bring back peace. Today, the US is using the same strategy to attack Syria, and nobody is there to say no.

This petition is to ask President Putin and the Russia Government to enter and protect Syrian government if the US tries to attack Syria. President Putin is the only person that can stop this crazy Obama's Idea. Do not let Syrian people down.

3. Ban Toxic Baby Wipes

The toxic ingredient (iodopropynyl butylcarbamate - IPBC) is found in many brands of baby wipes in Australia. It is known to cause skin irritation, is readily absorbed through the skin, and in animal testing was found to be acutely toxic when inhaled.

New Zealand cosmetic standards list IPBC as not to be used in preparations for children under 3 (except below certain levels in bath products, shower gels and shampoo) and the European Union has banned IPBC use in oral hygiene and lip care products.

Several leading supermarkets in New Zealand have removed baby wipes containing IPBC and yet it is still sold in Australia in products which come into direct contact with an infant's skin from birth.

Bub Hub Mums want the best for their children. This product should not be on the shelves.

4. More Regulations for the Use of formaldehyde in textile products

Formaldehyde is a toxic carcinogenic poison, and it is found in many textile products in the Australian market place. Even in "all natural" cotton products.

There needs to be some sort of regulations on this toxic poison, manufacturers of products should be required to at least label their products as containing formaldehyde, particularly due to the fact that there are many people who are allergic to this chemical, as well as many cancer sufferers who unknowingly expose themselves to this carcinogen on a daily basis.

5. Stop Australia's use of the Poison Methyl Bromide

Methyl Bromide (Bromomethane) is a toxic Chemical which is recognized as an ozone depleting substance, has been banned in Europe and has dangerous Respiratory, kidney, and neurological effects.

This poison is used as a fumigant for many products brought into Australia, including some food products as well as all wood products.

Most conventional rice products have been fumigated by this poison, and there is no way of knowing what has been fumigated as it is odorless.

Methyl Bromide is deadly and its use should be illegal.
Everyone should have the right of a safe planet to live in.

6. Ban DHMO in Australia

Dihydrogen monoxide (DHMO) is colourless, odourless, tasteless, and kills uncounted thousands of people every year. Most of these deaths are caused by accidental inhalation of DHMO, but the dangers of dihydrogen monoxide do not end there.

Prolonged exposure to its solid form causes severe tissue damage. Symptoms of DHMO ingestion can include excessive sweating and urination, and possibly a bloated feeling, nausea, vomiting and body electrolyte imbalance. For those who have become dependent, DHMO withdrawal means certain death.

Dihydrogen monoxide is the major component of acid rain. It contributes to both the “greenhouse effect” and the erosion of our natural landscape, and may cause severe burns. DHMO accelerates the corrosion and rusting of many metals, may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes, and has been found in excised tumours of terminal cancer patients.

Contamination is reaching epidemic proportions! Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in Australia today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage all over the country.

In spite of the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used in the production of nuclear power, the manufacture of Styrofoam, and the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce still remains contaminated by this chemical. Dihydrogen monoxide is also used as a fire retardant, and as an industrial solvent and coolant. It is used in many cruel forms of animal research, and has often been taken by athletes to improve their performance. DHMO can also be used as a food additive, and is frequently found in junk food. It even has a tendency to accumulate in dairy products.

Dihydrogen monoxide is found in all municipal water supplies, and there is no filter on the market that is able to remove this hazardous substance from our drinking water. Companies dump waste DHMO into rivers and the ocean, and nothing can be done to stop them because this practice is still legal. The impact on wildlife is extreme, and we cannot afford to ignore it any longer! This horror MUST be stopped!

Despite strong evidence linking DHMO ingestion with cancer, the Australian Government has refused to ban the production, distribution, or use of this damaging chemical due to its supposed “importance to the economic health of the nation.” In fact, the navy and other military organizations are conducting experiments with DHMO, and designing multi-billion dollar devices to control and utilize it during warfare situations. Hundreds of military research facilities receive tons of it through a highly sophisticated underground distribution network. Many store large quantities for later use.

It’s not too late to put an end to the use of DHMO in Australia. By signing this petition, you can help to secure the health and safety of all Australians in the future.

7. The Enforcement Of The 1979 United Nations Disarmament In Geneva

Disarmament in Geneva

Disarmament and non-proliferation remain indispensable tools to help create a security environment favourable to ensuring human development, as enshrined in the letter and the spirit of the Charter of the United Nations. UNOG is a center venue for international diplomacy in this field. It is home to the Conference on Disarmament - the sole multilateral disarmament negotiating body - and provides, through the Geneva Branch of the Office for Disarmament Affairs, substantive and organisational support to a wide range of multilateral disarmament agreements. In addition, UNOG hosts a large number of disarmament-related conferences.

The Conference on Disarmament (CD), established in 1979 as the single multilateral disarmament negotiating forum of the international community, following the first Special Session on Disarmament (SSOD I) of the United Nations General Assembly held in 1978. The Director-General of UNOG is the Secretary-General of the Conference on Disarmament as well as the Personal Representative of the UN Secretary-General to the CD.

Under the Anti-Personnel Landmine Convention (APLC), the United Nations Secretariat has been given a number of tasks, which are carried out by the Geneva Branch of the Office for Disarmament Affairs. These include, inter alia, collecting Article 7 reports on measures taken to implement the Convention and updating the relevant database, maintaining the Article 8 (9) List of qualified experts, as well as the organisation of the meetings of States parties, which take place alternatively in a mine affected country and at the United Nations Office at Geneva.

As a result of prolonged efforts by the international community to establish a new instrument that would supplement the 1925 Geneva Protocol, the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), the first multilateral disarmament treaty banning the production and use of an entire category of weapons, was opened for signature on 10 April 1972 and entered into force on 26 March 1975. All the meetings related to this instrument are currently being held in UNOG, and are serviced by the BWC Implementation Support Unit in the Geneva Branch of the Office for Disarmament Affairs.

The Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May Be Deemed to Be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects, also known as the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) or Inhumane Weapons Convention, comprises a convention and five protocols, which ban or restrict the use of various types of weapons that are considered to cause unnecessary suffering or that affect either soldiers or civilians indiscriminately. The weapons currently covered include weapons leaving undetectable fragments in the human body (Protocol I), mines, booby-traps and other devices (Protocol II), incendiary weapons (Protocol III), blinding laser weapons (Protocol IV) and explosive remnants of war (Protocol V). All the meetings related to this convention are currently being held in UNOG, and are serviced by the Geneva Branch of the Office for Disarmament Affairs.

The Geneva Branch of the Office for Disarmament Affairs is also responsible for the implementation of the United Nations Programme of Fellowships on Disarmament.

In addition, UNOG is occasionally hosting other meetings related to disarmament and non-proliferation instruments such as certain sessions of the Preparatory Committee of the Review Conferences of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), expert panels and seminars.

8. Help ban or limit the group My Chemical Romance

I would like for this petition to ban the group, My Chemical Romance. I realize this may not be possible but we should be able to put an age limit of 18 to purchase their music.

The facts are that this group and others like it are doing harm to our children! I have a very good friend and her 13 year old daughter was listening to them and wanted to kill herself. What kind of message are they sending to our children?

It is our duty to protect our children please join with me in this petition to put an age limit on this group and others like them.

9. Stop Polluting The Earth-Rivers, Lakes, Streets

July 11, 2006

We treat the environment like a joke.

I have seen so many rivers/lakes in the past full of rubbish and dangerous objects such as beer bottles, cans, plastic bags and plastic. But you can help!

Think about it:
National Tree Day
Cleanup Australia Day
Or just simply helping the environment by easily picking up rubbish you see and putting it securely into the rubbish bin! It's not hard at all.

Rivers And Lakes:
Have you ever noticed the scummy dirty look on rivers? Many causes of pollution including sewage and fertilizers containing nutrients such as nitrates and phosphates.In excess levels, nutrients over stimulate the growth of aquatic plants and algae.

Excessive growth of these types of organisms consequently clogs our waterways, use up dissolved oxygen as they decompose, and block light to deeper waters.

The pollution of rivers and streams with chemical contaminants has become one of the most crutial environmental problems within the 20th century. Waterborne chemical pollution entering rivers and streams cause tramendous amounts of destruction.

Pathogens are another type of pollution that prove very harmful. They can cause many illnesses that range from typhoid and dysentery to minor respiratory and skin diseases

Three last forms of water pollution exist in the forms of petroleum, radioactive substances, and heat. Petroleum often pollutes waterbodies in the form of oil, resulting from oil spills.

SAY "NO" TO PLASTIC BAGS!!!They are very dangerous to birds and other native wildlife.Birds use littered plastic bags for their nests and end up getting caught/tangled in it and experience a horrible suffocation!

Use the green environmentally friendly bags!!!Put an End to Plastic Bags - it's in your hands. It's simple and inexpensive to make the change.

Please sign my petition!

All comments/signatures will be greatly appreciated.

-may cause severe burns.
-contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
-accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
-may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
-has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.

Contamination is reaching epidemic proportions!

Quantities of dihydrogen monoxide have been found in almost every stream, lake, and reservoir in America today. But the pollution is global, and the contaminant has even been found in Antarctic ice. DHMO has caused millions of dollars of property damage in the midwest, and recently California.

Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:
as an industrial solvent and coolant.
-in nuclear power plants.
-in the production of styrofoam.
-as a fire retardant.
-in many forms of cruel animal research.
-in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.

This is an extremely urgent issue, please sign this petition so that we can get he Government's attention and stop the disastrous spread of this speciously dangerous substance!

11. Give "Breakfast Monkey" the credit it deserves!!

Positively the most important cartoon of your day, "The Breakfast Monkey" is an edible extravaganza through the wacky world of our squeaky-voiced hero - a monkey with the power of "breakfast magic."

His uncanny ability to produce wily waffles and bewitched bacon works wonders in warding off the evil cast of crazy characters of Mod City..

Join the Breakfast Monkey and his trusty sidekicks, Crazy Boy and Tinkle Fish, as they try -with good intentions but sometime disastrous results- to spread good food and good cheer to everyone they meet. Whether they like it or not.

12. Ban DHMO - Dihydrogen Monoxide

Dhmo is a poison. It is a colorless, odorless chemical compound. It is found in solvents, homemade bombs, and baby food as well as many other places. It can be lifethreatening if you are to inhale a very small amount. And it leads to corrosion and oxidation of metals.

13. ABSOLUTELY NO CHEMICALS FOR THE PORTAGE LAKES !

This is a local "Grass Roots" movement to prevent dangerous, toxic, and cancer causing chemicals from being dumped into the Portage Lakes.

14. Eliminate the dangerous chemical - dihydrogen monoxide!!!

There are plenty of good reasons to sign to eliminate the chemical since it:

1. can cause excessive sweating and vomiting.

2. it is a major component in acid rain

3. it can cause severe burns in its gaseous state.

4. Accidental inhalation can kill you

5. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes

6. It has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients.

16. Hear Our Voices: FMS, CFS, CFIDS, CMPS, MCS

For those of us who live with these invisible illnesses (Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome, Chronic Myofascial Pain and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity) this Petition is for you.

It is our hope that together we can make a difference in the education of the medical personnel; not only that these illnesses will be required teaching in their schools but also that courses are made available for current physicians and nurses in their Continued Education Requirements.

The medical community needs to know what these illnesses are, to realize they are very real and not just waste basket diagnoses or all in our heads. It's time for us to step up to the plate and demand that our voices be heard.

17. Stop chemical testing on 50 million animals this year

This petition is related to the news article I read concerning the lives of 50 million helpless and innocent animals forced to take chemical injections all for the sake of pointless household products and medical research.

Your signature is needed to show your concern. Kindness they give to humans and this is what cruel people, government and science give to them in return. They do no deserve this torture. Please help by giving your support. Thank You.

18. Make Bio-testing of all products law

Make Bio-testing (non-invasive, using state of the art technology) of all products used in and around our bodies, plants and animals absolutely compulsory. This would avoid the catastrophic consequences to humans, animals and plants of the widespread contamination by chemical,radiation, oil/petroleum, nuclear, pharmaceutical and biological agents.

REMEMBER, IN EVERY SINGLE CASE OF ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION, GENETIC DAMAGE, NUCLEAR POLLUTION, CHEMICAL AND PHARMACEUTICAL DAMAGE/DEFORMITY, AND "SAFETY" STANDARDS CREATED FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF THESE PROBLEMS, THERE IS ONE FACTOR COMMON TO ALL. In EVERY CASE, there was a whitecoated, academically impeccable, well credentialled and well paid (or well paid OFF) SCIENTIST WHO WAS GIVEN THE RIGHT OF VETO ON SAFETY...

There needs to be a new standard of BIO-SAFETY which simply means that anything that interferes with our oxygen uptake, heartrate, brainwaves, pulse and bio-meridian electric field and causes loss of capacity or downgrading of any of the above, should not be able to be sold without a rating of safety from 1 to 10, with 10 being the safest to all major body functions. The same should apply to animals, and plants, which can be tested for slowing of sap flow and lack of capillary response, just like human & animal blood flow, cortisol etc. Thermal imaging, simple medical instruments can be used to test this on an instant response basis. We DON'T need a five year, fund sucking 'scientific' study on safety to give us all the damaging exposures that have been sanctioned by these elitists, who have said 'this is totally afe', or 'this is safe enough to pass'. We all pay the price for their arrogant lack of care - why aren't their safe chemicals tested on scientist guinea pigs, diluted of course, just like our drinking water containing poisons, and ag. runoffs which are classed as safe. Remember that NUCLEAR pollution was pronounced totally safe by the American Academy of Science in the 1940's, and tobacco, and DDT, and Thalidomide, and thousands of others. We now have BSE because nobody bothered to bio-test animals for their body and systemic reaction to being fed manure mixed with chemicals and body parts of other (even diseased) species. Nature never ever sinned against any species in history, equal to the damage caused 'scientifically qualified' humans. DEMAND PROOF OF DYNAMIC BIO-SAFETY, NOT FIVE YEAR FARCES. Our planet deserves it and so do we.
