Consumer Product Safety
As people become more Earth-conscious in their lifestyles –incorporating recycling into their daily routines, for example, or using less water for showers –children and teens are picking up on the message. And while you may try and shop for organic produce or carpool once in a while, chances are you have some very eco-unfriendly products lurking in your bathroom and kitchen cabinets.
In this activity, your teen will do some snooping to investigate just what's in those cleaning products, and learn how to use Material Safety Data Sheets to identify possible hazards in the home.
What You Need:
- Household products (cleaning and bathing products are a great starting place)
