Comments on: Going Down the Road Less Traveled in EPA – Lead Outreach in a New Form http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/08/lead-outreach/ The EPA Blog Mon, 14 Dec 2015 16:24:21 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Helen http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2009/08/lead-outreach/#comment-15218 Mon, 31 Aug 2009 20:37:23 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=1080#comment-15218 I can not believe that in this day and age with all the information around us about lead poisining, that manufactures are still allowed to have it in their products.
Keep up the good work of making people aware of this problem.

The distribution will be important. Selections from the video contest winners could maybe be put together to form public service spots for television to get the word out. And the entire winning videos could be shown at community meetings in neighborhoods where older housing and lead paint is or could be an important issue. Also is the possibility of reaching out to programs and organizations who are interested in health issues and disabilities but who may not have been considered in the past. One example could be People First California and its state chapters. People First is an organization that works with and for disabled persons and would be interested in knowing what to do to eliminate some of the things in the environment that can cause disabilities, like lead paint in old houses. Many members have to live in older housing because it cost less and could be exposed to lead paint and other similar problems on an on-going basis. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
