Environmental Health

Our work impacts public policy at the national level, most recently by influencing the FDA ban of antimicrobials such as triclosan and triclocarban in hand soaps

Beyond protecting the health of human population, the HHO also serves to protect the environment and critical ecosystem services.

Classes of chemicals we regularly monitor for public health include:

  • Flame retardants
  • Antimicrobials
  • Pesticides
  • Perfluorinated chemicals
  • Microplastics
