Green Chemistry Initiative Supports Sustainable Health

Greening the chemical makeup of our products -- solid and liquid can make sustainable health more feasible. We are living in a chemical soup through neglect. Antibiotics in our water supply. Pesticides in our food supply. Lead in our toys. ALL chemicals can be dangerous when not handled responsibly. The green chemistry discussion is a very important one for us to have -- with one another and with our legislators -- and our product design leaders. You are am important member of that discussion. Please speak up to those around you who make everyday decisions about chemicals!

Green Chemistry for California Business

Submit your comments on the California Green Chemistry Initiative before the policies are issued July 1, 2008. This is a great opportunity to provide your input regarding toxics in various products and letting the DTSC know that this is an issue that needs to be addressed.

The California Green Chemistry Initiative seeks your thoughts and involvement as we begin to establish the blueprint for keeping California in the forefront of protecting health and the environment in a robust economy.

Green Chemistry can make a difference! California is leading the effort to fundamentally change the way it deals with its chemicals and waste. This web site provides all interested parties a forum to contribute their ideas and address the challenges of Green Chemistry.

California is seeking directions on green chemistry, specifically on 4 challenges:

  • Stimulating the Green Chemistry challenge
  • Identifying Toxics in Products by Design
  • Identifying Toxics in Products by Accident

Interested folks/organizations and business leaders can participate in the conversation about green chemistry strategies in a variety of ways:

Time is Short to Help Shape the California Green Chemistry Policy

Time is very short! The creation of a viable list of options to advance Green Chemistry must be submitted to Secretary Linda Adams by January 2008. From that list proposed recommendations for a final policy are due by July 1, 2008.
