Every building material does damage to our environment and potentially to our health. But there are some materials that are far more hazardous than others. On April 20th we will present information on a few of the more dangerous (and commonly used) materials, including PVC vinyl and the chemical flame retardants used in rigid insulation, foam cushions, and fabrics.

The extent to which these materials are used is frightening, even more frightening is the risk that they pose to the environment and to personal health and safety. Dr. Arlene Blum and Tom Lent will discuss not only the perils of these materials, but more importantly will offer solutions and alternatives that will reduce the dangers that we create.
