TOY JEWELRY SEEN HARMFUL TO CHILDREN

0

Toy jewelry for children may be easy on the pocket, but dangerous to a child’s health because of their undisclosed toxic chemicals used in their manufacture. The EcoWaste Coalition, an advocate for children’s protection against harmful chemicals in commerce and the environment, made the warning on the eve of the Joint Session of the 16th Congress in a bid to draw lawmakers’ attention on the lingering health threat from the marketing of toxic-laden children’s products. “The problem with toxic chemicals lurking in children’s products such as toys, school supplies, jewelries and accessories has gone unabated to the detriment of Filipino kids who are easy prey for some callous manufacturers,” said Aileen Lucero, Acting National Coordinator, EcoWaste Coalition.
