Lazy Daze and California Proposition 65
We support and follow Proposition 65 law also known as the “Right-to-know” law which means that consumers have the right to know if the product contains harmful toxins or chemicals.
What is Proposition 65?
The state of California passed the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, also known as Proposition 65, in response to concerns about toxic chemicals contaminating drinking water in 1987.
This law, which requires a warning label on all products shipped to California, aims to inform people about chemicals known to the state to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm, even if the presence of these chemicals is below a hazardous level.
The list of toxic chemicals covered by Proposition 65 has grown to approximately 800 chemicals since the law was first enacted and the list is continuously updated. Today, Proposition 65 warnings can be found on a wide range of products, including jewelry, lamps, hospitals, automobiles, beauty products, furniture, and more.
Proposition 65 warning on Lazy Daze products
While Proposition 65 warnings should not be ignored, Lazy Daze wants to assure you that all of our products meet US standards and are compliant with Proposition 65. It's worth noting that wood furniture items, in particular, may contain small amounts of wood dust, which is a chemical listed under Proposition 65 that makes for example but is not limited to our wooden stands and spreader bars affected by the law.
While research suggests that wood dust may pose health risks, the key factor in determining the extent of these risks is the level of exposure to wood dust. In most cases, hazardous levels of exposure to wood dust are only found in workplace environments where wood is being sawed or sanded.
