 Household Toxic Chemicals.

Common products and the risk they might bring.

Common household materials such as cleaning products, craft supplies, paints, and automotive products can have unwanted long-term health effects. Choose the less-toxic product for the job to limit your family’s exposure to unnecessary hazards. Do you know how to read product labels to find the less-toxic materials to bring into your home? How about safe storage and disposal of unwanted household hazardous products?

Thurston County Public Health has a team of educators who can talk to your group, school, Parent Teacher Organization, childcare provider, or anyone else who is concerned about household hazardous products. We have several presentations that can fit any group’s need from students at a middle school to community groups and seniors. For more information on the presentations available, go to our web site at Environmental Health Outreach , e-mail us at johnsoj@co.thurston.wa.us ,or contact an environmental educator at (360) 867-2674. The TDD line is 867-2603.
