OUR TOXIC STUFF

Is there a connection between our health and the stuff we buy? Join the Sierra Club Rochester ECOs group presenting Jennifer Canvasser, Environmental Health Organizer of the Ecology Center, who will talk about the toxic chemicals common in consumer products and their health effects, ways to reduce your exposure, and how to take action at the state and federal level.

>>> Jennifer will also offer product and toy testing with the XRF device (limit testing to 3 items/person). Bring your kids', dog's or cat's toys or other stuff you have a lot of contact withand worry about its content.<<<



More info:

There are over 80,000 chemicals on the market and fewer than 200 have been tested for health and safety. Thousands of chemicals are used to make our stuff - our electronics, furniture, children's products and toys. Many of the chemicals that are in our stuff and kids' toys have been linked to cancer, infertility, developmental disorders, and a range of other negative health impairments.

The XRF device can detect toxic heavy metals, including lead, arsenic, cadmium, and mercury, in consumer products or children's toys. *We limit testing to 3 items/person while others are waiting.
