Abstract

This project examines the safety of environmentally preferable consumer products. This was accomplished through observations of product marketing and interviews with representatives at retail stores, research into the Consumer Product Safety Commission's databases, and interviews with several experts in the fields of fire safety and environmental studies. Our research concluded that environmentally preferable products generally did not present additional hazards and in some cases presented safety benefits when compared to non-green, traditional products.
