Healthy Schools Network

Organization(s) Environmental Protection Agency - Region 2
Project Description In 2000, EPA Region 2 awarded an Environmental Justice (EJ) P2 grant to The Healthy Schools Network, Inc. Through its two-year project "Children, Learning, and Poisons Don't Mix: Helping Schools Kick the Toxics Habit," the Healthy Schools Network coordinated an effort to phase-out the use of toxic pesticides and hazardous custodial products in targeted low-income or minority schools, or in schools with high rates of asthma. Healthy Schools established three to five pilots with schools in upstate New York that phased-out or eliminated the use of these products. The organization also built awareness among health care providers of school environment-related health problems in children and of less costly and healthier alternatives to commonly-used products.
