Abstract
This handbook has been developed for currently practicing teachers and future educators – student teachers who are currently learning their profession. It is intended to be used as a practical tool to raise the awareness of youth about how we may be exposed to hazardous substances in our everyday life and how our everyday choices affect our health and the environment we live in. By integrating the topics covered in this handbook into different school
lessons we aim to improve the overall environmental behaviour and change the shopping habits, so young children grow up with the knowledge to consume less and to choose products with less hazardous chemicals.
