TEAC Celebrates Earth Day

April 22, Earth Day, is an annual event celebrated in more than 192 countries to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. http://www.earthday.org/

The Tarrytown Environmental Advisory Committee (TEAC) will be joining Mrs. Greens on April 12 and Tarrytown Third Friday on April 18 to share ideas with our neighbors about Earth Day activities. TEAC will be manning tables with displays and information about local environmental concerns. TEAC will be taking a survey to learn more about the environmental concerns and knowledge of our community and will also be promoting a Turn off your Cellphone Hour event for Earth Day and a RiverKeeper Sweep event coming May 10.

The suspect ingredients in these products are primarily chemicals contained in fragrances, preservatives and coloring agents. Health problems that have been associated with exposure to these chemicals range from contact dermatitis to endocrine disruption and, in some cases, cancer.
