Letter from HEJSupport and CELA to Canadian government/Focal points of the Stockholm Convention: Withdrawing the Stockholm Convention recycling exemptions for TetraBDE, PentaBDE, HexaBDE and HeptaBDE
Canadian consumers should be able to purchase products made of recycled materials without having to worry that they contain substances that are globally banned.
HEJSupport, IPEN, CELA, Arnika urge immediate action by Canada to withdraw recycling exemption for toxic flame retardants under the Stockholm Convention
HEJSupport directors participate in the Open Ended Working Group of SAICM, which is taking place from April 2-4 in Montevideo, Uruguay. The meeting discusses a future framwork for international chemical management.
HEJSupport participated in the meeting with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), Health Canada (HC) and Canadian environmental and health NGOs to discuss elements proposed for enhanced NGO engagement.
HEJSupport published a new fact sheet based on the findings of a small survey among women in Canada. We asked them about their purchase patters when buying feminine hygiene products.
HEjSupport is proud that its co-directors are among the women to be featured in the IPEN film honoring women working for a toxic free future.
