  • Jan.23.2-19: Traces of dangerous chemicals found in disposable nappies in France. Researchers warn of potential health risk as manufacturer Joone labels report ‘alarmist’. Ministers have given manufacturers 15 days to come up with a “plan of action” to remove a number of substances considered harmful to human health from their nappies. These include banned chemicals and traces of the controversial weedkiller glyphosate. Researchers found about 60 chemicals, including glyphosate, used in the weedkiller Roundup, some of which have been banned in the European Union for more than 15 years. Other substances, usually found in cigarette smoke or diesel fumes, were also discovered. Two major manufacturers, Pampers and Joone, reacted to the report on Wednesday. “Our nappies are safe and always have been,” Pampers said. The president of Joone described the Anses report as “alarmist”. Kim Willsher, The Guardian.
  • Apr.20.2018: Merck’s big health brands snapped up by Procter & Gamble. Merck has become the latest drug company to offload its consumer healthcare business, selling the division that makes Seven Seas cod liver oil for €3.4bn. The proposed deal with Procter & Gamble would allow Merck to focus on its core healthcare and life sciences business. Merck’s consumer health unit makes 900 over-the-counter health products for sale in 44 countries. P&G, which makes Gillette razors and Pampers nappies, is the world’s largest consumer goods maker. It has been facing a slowdown in demand for big-brand products as consumers shift to local and independent labels. It has also been under pressure to improve margins from an activist hedge fund.

Recycling is not a feasible solution to the plastic pollution crisis. Many plastics are very difficult, or impossible, to recycle. Megacorps make $billions of profits from the plastic-wrapped products - but leave communities to pay for and manage the negative impacts. As the food and products contained in plastic are consumed, people are accumulating phthalates and endocrine-disrupting chemicals in their bloodstreams. Break Free From Plastic, Oct.2018.
