During my more than twenty years of activism on issues involving persistent organic pollutants (POPs), I have come to have great respect for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and the International POPs Elimination Network (IPEN). UNEP and IPEN are entities that utilize scientific knowledge for the protection of the environment and the public health. This is a special role. There are very few entities in the entire world that do this. The National Toxicology Program, within the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institutes of Health is a United States government agency whose record makes it deserving of being honored together with UNEP and IPEN.

In 2010, the United Nations (UN) Environment Program (UNEP) in conjunction with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN commenced a campaign to educate the world's citizens upon the subject of toxic and hazardous chemical exposure disease outcome for the purpose of creating progress on the path of transition from careless and harmful activities involving use and disposal of toxic
and hazardous chemicals to acting with responsibility. Several categories of toxic and hazardous chemicals are addressed: (1) hazardous chemicals that are purposefully used in economic activity, (2) hazardous chemicals that are by products of chemical reactions or are created by industrial processes including, primary metals production, paper manufacturing and combustion of mixed solid wastes of which plastics are a component and (3) the chemicals listed in the Rotterdam, Basel and Stockholm Conventions. This campaign is aptly called Safe Planet. The campaign currently consists of an outreach on POPs body burden. Safe Planet additionally addresses right to know with regards to trans boundary movements of hazardous substances. Creating widespread awareness of the body burden problem is a highly important step toward full utilization of existing scientific knowledge to reduce pollutant exposure disease outcome.

Michael Stanley-Jones is the focal point for the Safe Planet campaign. Safe Planet is taking a leadership role in bringing POPs exposure reduction change. Michael looks upon Safe Planet as a means of harnessing a monumental upsurge of human energy for protecting the Earth from further poisoning.

Viva Safe Planet! Viva the environmental revolution that is sweeping the world!
