Bring Back The Polluters Pay Tax

All people deserve to live in a safe and healthy environment, regardless of the level of their wealth or the color of their skin. There are currently 1,388 toxic waste sites in the United States that are so dangerous they have been designated “Superfund” sites by the federal government. Over 72 million people in the U.S. live within three miles of a Superfund site. The contamination at these sites seriously endangers the health of people living nearby, causing higher rates of cancer, birth defects and developmental disabilities. But there’s no money left to clean up the contamination. Originally, big polluting companies paid into a fund that was used to clean up their messes. But in 1995, Congress let the Polluters Pay Tax expire. By 2003, our Superfund was broke. Ever since, cleanup efforts have slowed to a crawl while all of us as taxpayers are left holding the bag. Today, some of the biggest polluting corporations are making billions of dollars per year in profits and paying zero dollars in taxes. As climate change causes more flooding, hurricanes, and other natural disasters, increasing the risk of widespread toxic exposure from these sites, there is no time to waste. Chemical, Oil, Gas and other giant corporate polluters must pay to clean up their messes. Congress must bring back the Polluters Pay Tax.

Challenge

Prairy knocked over the recyling bin. She and Starbuck were upset by what they found. They want to issue us all a challenge. They issue a challenge.

How few SUPs can you exit the store with?

Take your grocery shopping list with you to the store and see how many products from your list you can purchase without them being packaged in single use plastics or made with some portion of single use plastics. Calculate the percent of single use plastic (SUP) items your purchases contained. ( SUP = plastic packaging and items made from plastic that are used once. ie shampoo or milk bottles, clam shells, cartons, plastic bags, films etc). SUP/ total items purchased x 100 = % of SUP items Record your results in the “Accept the Challenge button. SUP's Day by Day in July In connection with the plastic Free July campaign, Move Past Plastic (MPP) wants you to participate in the initiative: “SUPs Day by Day in July" a Daily Digest of single use plastics SUPs information. One report declared that we consume and inhale 5 grams of plastic per week, the equivalence of a credit card. So, let us consume information on this and other concerning plastic information. This information seeks to educate, impower and bring HOPE and real action for ending SUP negative impacts. Everyday TLC Education (www.tlceducation.info ) will be displaying various resources on its calendar for individuals and groups to learn more about the complex SUPS problem. There will be a pdf posted on the MPP and TLC Education websites that individuals, businesses, and organizations are free to download and use on their websites or calendars or personal computers. The content will be labeled to provide suggested viewing for various ages determined by technical knowledge and intensity of subject manner. The resource content will include information on the entire plastic cycle and their impacts. Some resources will include: articles, videos, books, youth educational information, recommended letters to legislator, petitions, and connections to our partners and their bank of educational resources and suggested action you may take.

Asbestos Exposure

Environmental Effects of Asbestos + 8

Ways to Limit Exposure

Mesothelioma and Asbestos Law Firms

Asbestos Products

The Lanier Law Firm is home to one of the world’s largest collections of asbestos products. EPA proposed a ban on the ongoing use of chrysotile asbestos, which it expects to finalize in October 2023. Although asbestos products have not been mined in the United States since 2002, hundreds of tons of chrysotile asbestos are still imported by U.S. companies, primarily for chlorine production.

Found in Plastic Products

Asbestos fibers reinforced plastic products made from PVC, nylon, resins and other synthetic materials. Consumer products such as toasters, hair dryers, and children’s toys. Also found in Building Materials, Paper, Felts, Textiles, Paint, Insulation, Automotive, Cement, Spray coating, sealents, adhesives, vinyls, asphalt shingles, and automotive parts.
