BPA experts to speak at UVM

We all know chemicals can be dangerous. You don’t want to get them in your eyes, or breathe their fumes. Sometimes though the tiny amount of them we’re exposed to every day can seem like it’s not a big deal. But it is.
This Monday evening at 6:30pm at UVM a panel of experts will be talking about why exposure to low doses of toxic chemicals matters, and what we can do collectively to change broken chemical policies.
The panel will include Mia Davis of Clean Water Action and the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, who VPIRG has worked with on our efforts to ban BPA, as well as Heather Weinstein from Planned Parenthood, an ally on much of our environmental health work, and Chris Miller from 7th Generation, one of the leaders in toxic-free products.
The presentation is sponsored by the UVM Environmental Program and is free and open to the public.
