In 2018, efforts of Earthjustice, a nonprofit environmental law firm, led the FDA to ban toxic lead acetate from hair dyes sold in the U.S. This win was thanks in part to a $100,000 grant from The Trust.

Earthjustice will continue its work to reduce exposures from lingering sources of this toxic metal.
