Toxic chemicals in our environment threaten our rivers and lakes, our air, land, and oceans, and ultimately ourselves and our future.
The production, trade, use, and release of many synthetic chemicals is now widely recognised as a global threat to human health and the environment.
Yet, the world's chemical industries continue to produce and release thousands of chemical compounds every year, in most cases with none or very little testing and understanding of their impacts on people and the environment.
The world is consuming more and more electronic products every year.This has caused a dangerous explosion in electronic scrap (e-waste) containing toxic chemicals and heavy metals that cannot be disposed ofor recycled safely. But this problem can be avoided. We are pressing leading electronic companies for change to turn back the toxic tide of e-waste. Know more
