Who We Are

Breast Cancer Prevention Partners works to prevent breast cancer by eliminating our exposure to toxic chemicals and radiation linked to the disease. We translate science into practical actions people, policy makers and companies can take to protect us from toxic exposures. The people who work at BCPP are passionate about what we do and committed to excellent work done in a collaborative environment. BCPP’s work is multi-layered and innovative, effectively weaving together public education, corporate accountability, corporate sustainability and legislative advocacy strategies to engage the public, move cosmetics companies toward safer products, and secure stricter regulation of the industry.

The Focus of this Position

Breast Cancer Prevention Partners coordinates the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, a national coalition launched in 2004 to protect the health of consumers, workers and the environment by securing the necessary reforms to eliminate chemicals linked to cancer, reproductive harm and other adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products.

Our second corporate accountability campaign Cans Not Cancer, was designed to get manufacturers to stop using the toxic chemical bisphenol A (BPA) to line their food cans and adopt safer alternatives.

We also advocate to secure stricter disclosure and regulation of unsafe chemicals in beauty products, cleaning products and food packaging through powerful state and federal legislative advocacy initiatives. Our advocacy efforts are informed by, and grounded in, the latest and the strongest science.
