Sierra Club & Clean Water Action Host 

Brown Bag Lunches on Children’s Environmental Health



Waterford and Rochester, MI — Deca, PBDEs, Lindane... need help deciphering the toxic alphabet soup.  Join Clean Water Action and Sierra Club Wednesday, October 3rd and Wednesday, October 17th for our Brown Bag Lunch Seminars in Waterford and Rochester.


Brown Bag Lunch Seminars are an alternative to your average lunch.  Bring your lunch and learn from an expert on the topic of environmental health.  This month, Clean Water Fund’s Environmental Health Organizer, Laura Russello, will be speaking to us about the toxic chemicals that are hiding in our homes.  Laura will provide us with resources about where we find chemicals in our homes and communities and how you can protect your family from them.


Bring your lunch and learn at the Warming House Pavilion in Waterford (550 Civic Center Drive) from 12 to 1pm.  In Rochester, we will meet at Mr. B’s Food & Spirits (423 South Main Street) from 12 to 1pm.  Feel free to order your lunch there.
