I recently had the pleasure of meeting with Joe, a manager at the Target retail store in Lexington, as part of the national Mind the Store campaign. Over the last several months, Target, Wal-Mart, CVS, Walgreens and several other large retailers of personal care and cleaning products have been asked to "mind the store" by offering products without toxic chemicals and requiring manufacturers to accurately label ingredients.
Like many Americans, Joe was unaware of the dangers lurking in common household products, and seemed skeptical. We like to believe that products are safe for our families.
Unfortunately, that is not the case.
