The Carey Institute’s Sustainable Communities Program is partnering with New York State Pollution Prevention Institute (NYSP2i) to host a free workshop, “Reducing Toxics in Everyday Life.” The workshop will provide local community educators, non-profit program coordinators and any interested residents with tools to reach their communities about the environmental and health impacts of the products we use and methods to minimize them. At the end of the workshop, attendees will receive presentation materials and fact sheets that can be adapted for your individual, organizational or community needs.
NYSP2i is as statewide organization funded by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. Its mission is to make New York State more sustainable for workers, the public, the environment and the economy through reductions in toxic chemical use, the efficient use of raw materials, energy and water, and reductions in emissions to the environment and waste generation.
