it's been going around the cloth-diaper-making community, etsy and many other craft blogs and forums: Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, a new law designed to ensure the safety of children’s products. Basically, it's lead testing for all products intended for children 12 years and younger. It will effect thousands of small businesses because the testing costs are crazy expensive. Sew, Mama Sew has a lovely, well worded post. And i am also using her links to refer you to TAKE ACTION.
please visit one or more of these websites to learn more and contact your representive to let them know that targeting the entire children's market will not only effect our overall economy but, it will also distroy local handmade goods & toys and small businesses everywhere. it will also take away all of the beautiful wood toys that get imported from Europe.
