As school begins, we as parents want to give our children everything, from new book bags to new clothes. We spend countless hours running from store to store getting all the last minute items that our children will need to start the year off right. But do we take into consideration the health hazards that may be awaiting them at school? Many schools still use cleaning products that contain a wide variety of hazardous chemicals that can cause asthma, cancer, reproductive harm, and damage to the body’s nervous system and internal organs. These chemicals are also the cause of poor indoor air quality in schools, which contributes to lower productivity and academic achievement, absenteeism, asthma and other diseases.

Wishing You a healthy school year
