We share the air (please be considerate)

(a reminder…)

To prevent HARM to people who suffer from MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITIES, we ask that you REFRAIN from the use of scented products.

PLEASE DO NOT USE SCENTED deodorant, aftershave, hair products, cologne, shampoo, body lotions, soap, FABRIC SOFTENER, DRYER SHEETS laundry detergent or other scented personal care and cleaning products as they release chemicals WHICH HARM people and other living things….

The above message came to me as a pretty flyer from our friend, colleague, and teacher Luz Guerra…I don’t yet know how to upload PDFs to Wire Cutter so for now I’ve just copied the text.

Thank you for helping to make our workshops on oral history & social justice safe for & accessible to people with chemical sensitivities.
