Description In partnership with the Washington State Attorney General’s Office, the Washington State Department of Ecology will investigate lead and cadmium in school supply products. School supply products include pencil pouches/cases, book covers, backpacks, and other supplies marketed and sold as school supplies for use by a child 12 years of age or younger. Products that are available to Washington state residents in summer 2021, coinciding with the beginning of the next school year, will be purchased online and/or in retail stores.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
