Center for Advanced Public Awareness

Our Mission:

Inform and Protect.

We believe all consumers have the right to understand the depth and breadth of the chemicals they are exposed to in products and in the environment.    Through advocacy and litigation, we hold companies accountable for toxins used in manufactured products and pollution caused during the manufacturing process. We aim to protect consumers from the dangers of these toxins, as well as hazards posed to our oceans and waterways.


Our Goal

CAPA's goal is to enable all consumers to have access to the most comprehensive information about the chemicals in the products they buy. We also want suppliers to be accountable for the dangerous and toxic chemicals that are often used in manufacturing processes. In the public interest, we actively pursue enforcement of state and federal environmental laws. We aim to create a cleaner, safer, and more informed society.
