“There are currently NO regulations that ban the toxins that Little Soles Inc. Is testing for. The CPSIA just recently started enforcing a lead reduction however they are still allowing 300ppm in footwear. We all know that lead can pose a threat to our children. We have seen this in the media through a series of toy scandals.  My objective has been to raise awareness about the lack of enforcement on these toxins and the importance of safety when purchasing products for our children, especially when we know there will be direct skin contact. I feel that by speaking publicly about this issue and offering footwear that surpasses the standards we are setting an important example for other manufactures, in hopes they will follow suit. 

I believe we as company owners all have the ability to effect positive change in our own industries.”
