The Ecology Center is a membership-based nonprofit environmental organization based in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It works at the local, state and national levels on environmental justice, health, waste, and community issues.
Ecology Center, in collaboration with four national partner organizations, today issued a challenge to leading car seat manufacturers to develop and produce car seats without the use of toxic chemicals that can have harmful effects on children’s health.
Although it is essential for children to be in car seats for protection related to crashes, some seats are less hazardous than others when it comes to chemical composition. This is according to the latest research on toxic chemicals in car seats by the Ecology Center.
A coalition of health and environmental groups is calling on Michigan policymakers to end lead poisoning in Michigan. Lead abatement is sound economic investment and a critical public health step for Michigan’s future.
