Building Health Initiative Lunch and Learn: Toxic Flame Retardants – What You Need To Know
Thursday | May 08, 2014 | 12:00 pm — 1:30 pm
USGBC-NCC Offices | 560 Mission Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94105
Did you know that until recently California law mandated toxic flame retardants in furniture despite controversy surrounding their actual efficacy? As of January 2014, and a new regulatory environment, healthier furniture with no-added flame retardants (FR) can be specified and purchased both commercially and residentially. Ineffective flammability standards led to widespread use of toxic FR chemicals for the past 30+ years and new California flammability standards can now be met without use of toxic chemicals, IF specified, for upholstered furniture. Information and resources for specifications/purchases to be provided.
