SB 126 will set up a framework in the state to enable the Department of Public Health to identify chemicals that pose an exposure hazard to children and to make recommendations to the public and lawmakers every two years on ways to reduce exposure.
Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
Unacceptable Levels is a documentary that illuminates how all of us, and particularly vulnerable children are exposed to over 80,000 various toxic chemicals daily from common household products, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe.
Ed Brown, the director of the film will attend the screening and be answering questions afterwards.
The film features interviews with author and consumer advocate Ralph Nader, top pediatricians, scientists, environmentalists, and professors. The film poses challenges to corporate leaders, lawmakers, parents, and individuals on how to best address this complex issue.
The filmmakers believe that passing SB 126 in the Connecticut Legislature is a step in the right direction.
Actress, author and healthy living advocate, Mariel Hemingway said, “Unacceptable Levels is a hugely important film… Sadly, most Americans are misinformed or not informed at all about how many toxic chemicals we are being exposed to 24 hours a day. These toxins are making us sick and quite simply our lives are being threatened. We need to stand up and speak out. We must demand a healthy environment for ourselves and for our children. Unacceptable Levels poignantly reveals how chemicals have invaded our lives.”
The film screening will take place the day after a rally scheduled at the State capital to draw attention to the bill. “SB 126 will set up a framework in the state to enable the Department of Public Health to identify chemicals that pose an exposure hazard to children and to make recommendations to the public and lawmakers every two years on ways to reduce exposure,” said Anne Hulick, Coordinator for the Coalition for a Safe and Healthy CT, the group leading this work.
The filmmakers have teamed up with local environmental action groups, Audubon Greenwich, the Garden Education Center of Greenwich, Clean Water Action Connecticut, and Sulva to sponsor this important screening for Greenwich residents. The collective hope is that viewers will go away from the film concerned enough to take action by calling and writing their legislators to pass bill SB 126 Children’s Exposure to Chemicals.
