We will send you the details you need a day or two before the webinar. You'll

Facilitator: Anne Pernick, BEN

Description:
If you've been vigilant about avoiding BPA, this spring's Mother Jones article 
(http://www.motherjones.com/environment/2014/03/tritan-certichem-eastman-bpa-free-plastic-safe) 
likely left you very worried about the plastics in your pantry and cupboard, and 
maybe you threw them all out. We're in a moment of evaluating risk, but do 
we have all the information we need, and are we thinking on the right scale? 
What are estrogenic chemicals? Do they always cause harm in people or other
animals? What consumer choices will make the most difference in lowering our 
exposure and lowering our impact on the planet? Why can companies use
estrogenic chemicals if there may be risks associated with them? Why are they 
replacing one chemical of concern, like BPA, with another, like BPS? What are 
advocates doing to reform companies and regulations to make products safer, 
and how can we help them as consumers, scientists, and citizen activists?

This is a free, public webinar which will be recorded, posted, and shared.

The Business Ethics Network (BEN) supports diverse activists and leaders in their 
work to reform destructive corporate behavior and rein in excessive corporate 
power. If you sign up for a BEN event and you're not yet a Member or Citizen 
Activist, we'll sign you up for a free activist or Citizen Activist membership, but 
you can opt out at any time. As a Member you'll receive invitations to more 
events like these and other resources.
