TOXICS IN TOYS

We’ve got so many bath toys at our house that there’s barely room for my kids in the tub. But there’s one kind of tub toy that we don’t have. A few years ago when I learned about the dangers of chemical plasticizers called phthalates, I purged our entire flock of rubber duckies. But it seems rubber ducks are no longer a toy to be feared by parents in Canada… or in China, either.

In this audio story, produced for the Greenpeace Canada podcast, you’ll hear from a campaigner in the Greenpeace office in Beijing, China about a successful campaign to regulate toxic chemicals in children’s toys.
