Description Focus sheet dicusses current regulations missing toxic pollution
coming from everyday products. The risk from toxic chemicals doesn’t begin with a leaking drum of hazardous waste. It begins when we make products that contain toxic chemicals. Much of the pollution that enters our environment comes from the small but steady releases of toxic chemicals contained in everyday products such as the brakes on our cars, flame retardants in our furniture, softeners in plastics, and metals in roofing materials.
