  • Resolution Status: Active

That BCCPAC urge the Provincial Government and all School Districts to review from the perspective of children’s health all products used in schools that contain carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and endocrine disruptors, and replace them with non-toxic and environmentally safe products. This review is to include all chemicals and products that are used in classrooms, offices, maintenance, and cleaning, including school grounds and facilities. Where alternate products are not available, schools will eliminate the use of the product if at all possible and, where this is not possible, the students, staff, and parents will be advised of the proper handling of such products and be provided with the option of either not using or not being put in contact with the product.
