The society said its goal is to find “more environmentally friendly, less toxic materials.”
It’s a goal that has been echoed by others, including the Natural Resources Defense Council.
The group has been pushing for the US government to regulate the use of babystones for several years.
The use of synthetic babystones has been growing, particularly among women, the NRDC said in a report earlier this year.
According to the NRSC, the percentage of American women who said they have used a synthetic babystone has grown from 9% in 2011 to 25% in 2017.
The report says it is time for the government to step in.
“While we are not at a tipping point, we are in a critical moment,” said Nancy Schatz, vice president for policy and research at the NRCC.
“And I believe that there is an urgent need to protect our environment and our children from synthetic baby stones.”
A new group, American Jewelers, is trying to get the federal government to take action.
The company, which sells babystones online, is also calling on Congress to enact new laws.
“This is a serious issue that has to be addressed,” said Emily Pendergrass, the group’s president.
“If we don’t do something now, we’re going to continue to see babystones used in places that we don and can’t go.”
