The sustainability team on the job

I had to share this example of Wooster sustainability at work.  Until this year, soap in the campus soap dispensers did not include triclosan, a known endocrine-disrupting chemical.  When we switched to the new dispensers, alert chemistry professor Melissa Schultz noted that the new soap did contain triclosan.  She brought the matter to the campus sustainability committee; we contacted head of custodial services Ken Fletcher; and he arranged for us to switch to a different type of soap that did not contain the chemical. It was that easy!

Want to know more about triclosan, and why you should avoid it?
