Reducing Toxins in our Environment 

Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. General Meeting at the Levittown Library

Not a day goes by without hearing or reading about environmental pollutants and toxins. They are in the air we breathe, in the water we drink. Are these toxins in low enough concentrations so that we are not actually in danger? How can we find out? What can we do if they are not? How can we protect ourselves and our families?

Join us on Wednesday, September 16, 2015, at 7:30, at the Levittown Library, to hear Neal Lewis, Executive Director of the Sustainability Institute at Molloy College discuss how you can Live Green and Reduce the Toxins in Your Daily Environment.

Mr. Lewis, a respected advocate on environmental issues has helped enact policy changes at various governmental levels. Come to the meeting, hear what he has to say and ask questions to learn more.

Friends, relatives and members of the community are welcome. The program is being co-sponsored by the Levittown Library.
