Every day, people use products on their bodies or in their homes whose ingredients may make their way down the drain and eventually into the environment. How do we determine whether there are risks to the environment associated with chemicals used in formulated consumer products? Join the American Cleaning Institute
on Thursday, October 12 at 2 p.m. EDT for a free webinar where you can learn about iSTREEM.
This online tool predicts the concentrations of "down-the-drain" chemicals in the US and southern Ontario surface waters. Find out how iSTREEM may help you better understand possible environmental risk associated with use of these products by registering online today, click here
Background on iSTREEM: Household and personal care products (like shampoo, hand soap, and laundry detergent) are used daily, and in high volumes. Often times, the end life of the chemicals in these products are disposed of "down-the-drain." iSTREEM is a free, web-based GIS-model that estimates the concentration of "down-the-drain" chemicals within the aquatic environment. It was created in order to promote product stewardship and regulatory compliance among chemical suppliers and formulated product manufacturers.
