SENATOR PHIL BOYLE TO BE HONORED AT PICNIC FOR WORK TO PROTECT CHILDREN’S HEALTH

Many children’s products sold in New York contain dangerous chemicals that are putting children’s health at risk, and current policies are failing to address this problem. Senator Boyle is working to improve New York’s laws and take a holistic approach to removing dangerous chemicals from children’s products and ensure the use of safer alternatives. Senator Boyle will be honored for his leadership by Environmental Advocates of New York, Citizens Campaign for the Environment, Sierra Club, and other allies.

The family friendly picnic is free and open to the public and will include a fun and informative workshop on the science of bubbles held by the Long Island Children’s Museum. Food and refreshments will be provided. Attendees can register online at http://bit.ly/185jINq or by emailing info@eany.org.
