EcoWaste Coalition Bats for Lead-Free Schools

30 May 2016, Quezon City.  The EcoWaste Coalition, an advocate for a lead-safe  school environment, exhorted the principals, teachers and parents to be vigilant  to ensure lead-free school makeovers during the week-long Brigada Eskwela (school repair and maintenance) starting today.

The chemical and waste watch group has partnered with the Sto.Cristo Elementary School in Bago Bantay, Quezon City to drum up awareness and compliance to government directives on lead paint.

24 May 2016, Quezon City.  A waste and pollution watchdog group advised the public to steer clear of school supplies containing cancer-causing and endocrine disrupting chemicals as consumers take advantage of “back-to-school” promotional sales.

MANILA, Dec. 4 (PNA) -- The EcoWaste coalition has expressed serious concern over the recycling of plastics containing toxic substances into children's toys that are sold in the local market.

Rejecting the malicious complaints filed in Manila to pester Dr. Romeo Quijano, a doctor, scientist and internationally recognized health expert, over 100 groups from 47 countries signed a joint appeal initiated by IPEN and Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific (PAN AP) asking the government of the Philippines to dismiss the dubious complaints and halt the harassment against Dr. Quijano, who is also a former co-chair of IPEN.
