Dollar Stores Score Behind the Curve on Annual Retailer Report Card

Just in time for the holiday shopping season, the Campaign for Healthier Solutions and the Mind the Store campaign released a report card on toxic chemicals in consumer products, which scored 30 major U.S. retailers on safer chemicals policies.  While several retailers showed substantial leadership on toxic chemical policies and improved their grades over last year, the average score was a ‘D+’.  The report, Who’s Minding the Store? -- A Report Card on Retailer Actions to Eliminate Toxic Chemicals, found that the nation’s two largest dollar store chains scored behind the curve, with Dollar Tree earning a grade of ‘D’ and Dollar General earning an ‘F’.
