Terra Verde – California’s Proposed Safer Consumer Products Regulations

On March 17 and 24, 2006, Terra Verde ran a two-part special on toxics in consumer products, as part of California’s Green Chemistry initiative. Now, 6 years later, regulations have just been proposed to make the idea of green chemicals policy a reality. So, we are presenting another two-part special on Terra Verde. This segment will look at the proposed regulations and then explore whether the regulations can benefit business. The second segment, September 14, will look at the health and environmental risks of toxic ingredients personal care products specifically, such as antibacterial soaps, hair dyes, straighteners, and cosmetics, and what individuals and organizations are doing to address the risks now.

Guests: Debbie Raphael, Director of the California Department of Toxic Substances Control; Mike Wilson, Director of the Labor Occupational Health Program at UC Berkeley; and Ryan Williams, Good Cop, Method

Host: Adrienne Fitch-Frankel
