The California Senate has passed Assembly Bill 1059, banning the sale of mattresses and upholstered furniture containing toxic flame retardant chemicals, including fiberglass. Sponsored by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), the bill aims to protect consumers from health hazards associated with these materials. If enacted, the ban will take effect on January 1, 2027. Manufacturers will need to find non-toxic alternatives to meet fire safety standards. The bill emphasizes transparency in product labeling and encourages consumers to choose companies that use safer materials like wool and cotton.
