Children are exposed daily to hazardous chemicals on their for schools – for example, through the toxic flooring and plastic toys.
But now it will be easier to be able to opt out of the poison. The Swedish environmental management Council is working to develop new criteria which will be used in procurement.
But at preschool Solar cottage in Viksta outside Uppsala, the parents are not willing to wait without taking matters into their own hands.
Sofie Joosse is a parents who involved themselves in to get rid of some of the chemicals that hides in things on for school.
Carpets with plasticizers
In a feature with the Swedish radio, she shows how they began to check up what was in the room, however, and replaced harmful toys with others, such as remote control cars.
“You can watch this at the back of the head on the dock where there are a number which you then can check online and see how it is produced. Another concern is what we stand for. The floor. PVC mats can contain plasticizers, phthalates are unhealthy, “she explains.
Chemicals in pillows and mattresses
The children crawling around on the floor and Sofie’s Kristoffer’s son, the two year old Midas, sucking on a tiny plastic replica. The chemicals found in pillows, mattresses, toys and plastic plates from falling into the dust as children’s fragile little bodies then get in and of itself.
Concentrations above the limit values
When the Swedish Chemicals Agency controlled some toys appearing on kindergartens around the country found not only substances which are harmful, but also that the concentrations of them were above the limits of what is permissible in Sweden.
“People have imagined that an authority checked everything”
Anne L on the Swedish environmental management Council are working to produce guidelines to make it easier to ask for things purchased at the tenders. For as it stands today, there are few in the know on what things actually contains, as they often are produced in countries far away.
“People have thought that there is an authority that has checked everything, but it’s not,” says Anne L to Swedish radio.
The unease justified
And there is reason for parents to be concerned about the chemicals to which children are exposed to, she says.
“Many of these have shown a tendency to affect the hormone system and it is very important that it is not disturbed during development time when you’re small. You’ve seen correlations of diabetes, obesity and some types of concentration. For high levels of certain chemicals can also provide public health diseases.
