Campaign for Healthier Solutions

All families deserve safe and healthy products, and all communities deserve business partners that will prioritize the health of their customers.

Unfortunately, millions of American families live in “food deserts” without access to fresh fruits and vegetables—forcing them to rely on dollar stores for much of their food. We tested dollar store products and found many contain toxic chemicals at alarming levels. Sadly, the nation's largest dollar store chains have done very little to protect us and our families.

People of color and the poor are often already over-exposed to toxic chemicals and unhealthy foods, and that’s why the Campaign for Healthier Solutions is working to get toxic chemicals out of dollar stores. Our campaign is focused on economic and environmental justice, led by grassroots community activists, and we’re fighting to make sure dollar stores help solve our problems—instead of adding to them.

We’ve already won important commitments from some of the nation’s largest dollar stores, but there’s still lots of work to do to get them caught up to other major retailers. Please support our work for a more just and nontoxic future!
