Non-Profit Groups Looking Into Toxicity of Salon Chemicals

The Environmental Protection Agency has awarded two Seattle non-profit groups $100,000 to help nail salons become more conscious of the toxicity of some of the chemicals used during business. The groups involved — The Environmental Coalition of South Seattle and The Community Coalition for Environmental Justice — will conduct a three-year project which will entail researching alternative products and chemicals that might be safer than those currently used, installing equipment to reduce exposure to chemicals, and community education.
