Santa, please bring healthy toys

As you wrap up the last of your holiday gift shopping, you may want to check out this informative web site by the Ecology Center. Nearly 700 toys were tested for the 3rd Annual Consumer Guide to Toxic Chemicals in Toys. According to a press release, "one in three of all toys tested this holiday season contained one or more harmful chemicals including lead, cadmium, arsenic, and mercury."

Not in my house, Santa!

Check out the Ecology Center's, where you can type in the name or brand of a toy to find out how it ranked in the consumer guide. Armed with knowledge of which toy manufacturers are playing naughty or nice, you'll feel much better about the presents under the tree or by the menorah this year. Happy shopping!
