Flame retardants are associated with numerous health risks and yet they're added to every day products including electronics, furniture,
and baby products. The chemicals leak and persist, exposing our families, communities, and natural systems. Why were these chemicals
brought into consumer products in the first place, and what's keeping them there? What are the risks of being exposed? Who may be at a
disproportionate risk? What are activists doing to get the chemicals phased out and replaced? What can consumers do to protect themselves?
This is a free, public webinar, which will be recorded, posted, and shared.
