Something’s In The Air
A study measuring the presence of toxic flame retardants in the air breathed by 10 prominent Washingtonians
Products in our homes are full of toxic flame retardants—typically at high levels. As ingredients in products from couches to building materials, these toxic chemicals are a part of our daily lives. We know also that these compounds don’t stay in products, making the exposure of children and adults a serious concern.
To gain more understanding of this exposure, we asked the question: are we breathing flame retardants in our daily lives?
We measured toxic flame retardants in the personal air of 10 Washingtonians, and we outline our findings in this report.
