Celebrate Major Retailer Removing Dangerous Paint Thinners

Target: Robert Niblock, CEO of Lowe’s

Goal: Congratulate Lowe’s on removing products with toxic chemicals in order to protect public health.

Lowe’s decided to stop selling paint strippers that contain a deadly chemical known as methylene chloride, an ingredient in paint strippers known to cause liver toxicity, cancer, and nervous system damage. After the ingredient was linked to multiple deaths, Lowe’s and other retailers were petitioned by activist groups to remove any products containing the deadly ingredient.

The move is the latest in a line of environmentally minded decisions by major corporations, as more and more brands begin to listen to consumers’ concerns over toxic chemicals and anything potentially dangerous to public health or safety. Lowe’s should continue the trend and remove anything else in their stores that may contain ingredients toxic to the public or environment. Sign the petition below to keep the momentum rolling and congratulate Lowe’s on the smart move!


Dear Mr. Niblock,

Thank you for helping to set a precedent among home repair retailers that toxic chemicals will not be tolerated in consumer products. If more major retailers had the gall to take a stand against toxic ingredients, we wouldn’t have such a public health crisis from household products. Taking this step is important in ensuring public health be restored from any damage done by our industrial pollutions.

We applaud Lowe’s for taking the measures necessary to protect consumers. Thank you for removing these deadly products from the market.
