NOW this is a way to pass an bill - Method's soap commercial

now this is the way to create a public service announcement!  making people aware of toxic chemicals in our products doesn't have to be a daunting task....  sometimes humor can get at the point far more effectively

Currently, a company does not have to list all the really toxic things in their products, but hide them under "trade secrets' and not have to list them under their ingredients.  In 2009, they were working to get this passed... did it...  hummmm  doubtful  :( 

see this article where I'm taking my information from:  http://www.elephantjournal.com/2009/11/a-dirty-commercial-via-the-method-folks/

“Method’s campaign offers a call to action for viewers to support the Household Product Labeling Act of 2009, a bill that has been introduced in Congress and would require household cleaning products to be clearly labeled with complete ingredient disclosure. Method supports this bill and encourages companies to be transparent in their product labeling."
