Prioritizing chemicals of concern
October 2019—Whether you’re a manufacturer, a facilities manager or a citizen concerned about chemicals in products, it can be daunting to assess which chemicals are potentially harmful.
The non-profit EDF has just released a guide for how to approach this. It’s designed for product manufacturers but the process and resources will be helpful in many situations. The guide includes links to lists of harmful chemicals and provides a process for deciding which ones to work on eliminating first. Consumers may be interested in the non-toxic industry labels and programs.
