Greetings to Friends and Interested New Folks!
You are invited to a special talk by Anna Salanti, RN, President of Pacific
Northwest Foundation on Healthier Buildings with the Latex Sensitivity Issue this Saturday.
Time: 12:00 noon for Organic Foods Buffet, 1:00 Slide Presentation and
Where: Friends Meeting Hall, 4312 SE Stark, south side of street.
Date: Saturday, May 20, 2000
* This is an excellent opportunity to meet board members and interesting
professionals, to learn about a very important, growing health concern and
network for our common goal of good health.
* Learn safe alternatives to latex gloves in food handling, dental and
medical work, and in products as children's pacifiers, condoms and balloons.
* All events are scent-free, please do not wear any colognes, perfumes, or
use fabric softeners, antiseptic soaps. Thanks for your consideration, as
toxic ingredients including formaldehyde and toluene in perfumes create poor indoor air quality.
*OR Ecobuilding Network advocates for healthier "green" buildings as school, home and workplace in order to make a positive difference for the general public and chemically injured people. We offer extensive resources, lectures, presentation, and peer support. To meet the growing concern, we are presently doing fundraising. Our community needs your support and encouragement through donations to make our network sustainable. All donations are tax deductible and show that you care.
*For extensive coverage on the Latex Issue, please check out www.pnf.org
and see selections from our current newsletter and resource guide at our
website of www.pnf.org/oebn or call us at (503) 760-2092 for a complimentary packet of information.
We appreciate your interest. Your suggestions are welcome; we hope to meet
you in person and join together in this crucial work to improve our
environment for the next generation!
