Webinar: PVC Plastic - Unhealthy for Kids and Schools

Source: Workplace Health and Safety

Healthy schools are critical to children's health. PVC is an emerging toxic plastic of concern. Also known as vinyl, PVC is widespread in back-to-school supplies, office supplies and building materials.

This plastic is often filled with phthalates - chemicals harmful to children's health that have been banned in toys, but widespread in schools.

The good news is safer and affordable alternatives are available for schools and parents to use and purchase.

Learn how you can help create healthier and safer schools for all, by joining this webinar sponsored by New York State United Teachers (NYSUT), United Federation of Teachers (UFT), and the Center for Health, Environment & Justice (CHEJ).
