Today in 2017 (almost 2018) things are being made and sold with high levels of toxic lead every single day! Think this is not true? Check out the following products and links! [Please click on each of the product images to read the full details about each of these products!]
I thought this would be a fun post to write and my readers would get a kick out of it too! These links are Amazon affiliate links. If (god forbid!) you should buy any of this toxic shit, I will get a small percentage of what you spend to support my advocacy work. PLEASE do not buy any of this stuff! Just click on the images and read the product descriptions to see how they proudly share that they are selling stuff made of lead! [Sometimes 20, 30, 40 or 100% lead even!]
The problem of course here is that in order to create these things not only are they creating toxic products at the end of the manufacturing process, but by perpetuating the need for the mining and refining of lead to create these products these companies are also contributing to the airborne lead on our planet – poisoning our atmosphere and soil and water in the process.
Maybe we should create a petition asking Amazon to stop selling leaded products? Hmmmm…. (one petition coming right up!) In the meantime feel free to post reviews on any of these product listings on Amazon and make sure to state that these products are toxic and Amazon should stop selling them. Maybe we can get that to happen! [like we got them to stop selling leaded fidget spinners!]

And I will leave you with this… white lead artist paint! Just $29.34 on Amazon, & free shipping! Buy yours today! WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK! Amazon, aren’t you better than this?
Note: this one appears to possibly also be lead paint, but it is not 100% clear since several of the brands of artist paint use the language “Blanc de Plomb” for lead-like modern substitutes. I am waiting to hear back from the company to confirm. ($47.64 with free shipping):
Please let me know if you find any other good examples!
