Groups Expose “Mercury Product Pushers”
Manufacturers Fight Phase-Out, Shun Responsibility

Madison, WI—In state legislatures across the country, industries
that make mercury-containing products are fighting legislation
requiring them to phase-out or take back their toxic products.
A new report, Menacing Mercury Product Pushers, released
today by the Zero Mercury Campaign and GrassRoots
Recycling Network (GRRN), disputes the claims of these
industries, including manufacturers of fluorescent lamps,
thermostats, computers, automobiles, and cleaning products.
The report calls on those industries to clean up their products
and urges state legislatures to protect consumers and the
environment from mercury-containing consumer products.
