Many children’s products have recently been recalled due to toxic chemicals, such as lead and cadmium. The Lakeville Friends of the Environment (LFE) is sponsoring this event, conducted by Clean Water Action as a part of the Health Legacy Coalition.
LFE advises families to bring the following items to be tested: children’s jewelry, vinyl toys such as rubber ducks and bath books, painted wooden toys or any other item you would like to test.
In addition to testing, Kim LaBo of Clean Water Action and the Health Legacy Coalition will present on common household products that may contain toxic chemicals. She will identify these chemicals, the products they are in and the safer alternatives.
Valley Natural Foods carries a great selection of non-toxic cleaners and beauty products. The co-op is also helping LFE raise funds to put on community awareness events such as this. If you are interested in contributing to LFE, collection cans are posted at each register.
For more information on LFE or this event, contact the group at 952-250-3320.
