Macy’s Commits to Stop Selling Furniture with Flame Retardants
Department store Macy’s (NYSE: M) is the latest retailer to commit to cease selling furniture containing flame retardant chemicals.
The retailer’s decision came earlier this week.
Other retailers that have committed to the change include Ikea, Walmart and Ashley Furniture HomeStores.
“We thank and congratulate Macy’s for taking this big step to make all sofas safe,” Mike Schade, Mind the Store campaign director for Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families. “This is an important victory for our Mind the Store campaign and millions of Macy’s customers nationwide.”
Mind the Store is a consumer campaign that challenges retailers to adopt policies to identify, restrict and substitute more than 100 hazardous chemicals in common consumer products.
