Healthy schools are critical to children’s health. PVC, also known as vinyl, is an emerging toxic plastic of concern and 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 NYS United Teachers (NYSUT), United Federation of Teachers (UFT), and the Center for Health, Environment & Justice (CHEJ).

In unity,
