Carter's Responds to Calls to Remove Toxic Chemicals from Baby Clothes


Carter’s, the largest U.S. retailer of baby clothes, is taking an important first step towards limiting toxic chemicals in its supply chain, and it is doing so as a result of pressure from Green America and its members! 

Carter’s actions include releasing an Restriced Substances List (RSL), disclosing information about energy usage and waste reduction, and providing greater transparency about efforts to protect human rights within its supply chain.

Nearly 15,000 consumers have joined Green America in calling on Carter’s to clean up its supply chain and release a Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL), which would go a step further than an Restricted Substances List (which only protects consumers) by limiting harmful chemicals that workers and their communities are exposed to in the manufacturing process.
