As you may be aware, some individuals who attend EPA meetings have chemical sensitivity due to multiple exposures in their communities. As a result, they may have adverse health reactions to products commonly used every day, such as scented air fresheners, scented toiletry items, perfumes and colognes. In addition, other individuals may suffer from asthma triggered by exposure to these same products.
Please be sensitive to the needs of these participants by refraining from using perfumed or scented items at the meeting. We ask that you also share this request with others in your office who may be planning to attend. Thank you for your careful consideration and attention to this matter.
