A new report by Clean Production Action provides the first ever Chemical Footprint of Products Commonly Used in Pediatric Patient Rooms. Hazardous chemicals in products are catalyzing health care organizations to ask suppliers whether or not their products contain these chemicals.

Pediatrics was chosen for evaluation because of the well-recognized greater sensitivity of children to exposure to toxic chemicals than adults.
