 To Heighten awareness about environmental issues impacting children, EPA is providing parents and caregivers simple tips they can use to help protect children in their homes, schools, and communities.

Children eat, drink and breathe more per pound than adults.  When food, water or air is polluted, children are more affected by that pollution when compared to adults.  These concerns about children’s health are a driving force for many EPA programs, policies and regulatory activities.

“As both EPA Administrator and a mother, I understand the importance of protecting our children from environmental threats,” said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson.  “Throughout Children’s Health Month, we will work to help parents and caregivers ensure the safety of our children and build a safer, cleaner, more sustainable world for their future.”
