Description In 2022, Ecology and Mother Africa met to discuss a project that could equip communities in Washington with information and resources to protect themselves and their families from harmful chemicals in their self-care products. Mother Africa and Ecology partnered to host a series of workshops as a pilot project. The workshops used a community-centered and culturally relevant approach to engage African and Middle Eastern immigrant and refugee communities who may face disproportionate exposure to harmful chemicals in personal care products.
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.

ADA Accessibility
The Department of Ecology is committed to providing people with disabilities access to information and services by meeting or exceeding the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Section 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, and Washington State Policy #188.
