GLRPPR Sector Resource: Tackling Toxics: Testing Children's Products

Title:
Tackling Toxics: Testing Children's Products

Abstract:
Toxic chemicals, especially long-lasting ones that build up over time, can be found everywhere -- our air, land, water, and bodies. Children are more sensitive to toxic chemicals than the general population. Ecology has tested more than 200 children's products sold in Washington to verify that manufacturers are following laws that regulate the use of toxic chemicals. In this video, Ecology's Carol Kraege, who leads our efforts to reduce toxic threats, tells the tale of a baby shoe that was removed from stores after failing to meet standards.
