A few months ago I took a webinar taught by some Chemical professors from Cal Berkley sponsored by the Sustainable Furnishings Council. I had been reading a fair amount about Flame retardants in cushions and was trying to make a decision on whether to switch our cushions to FR Free as a standing operating procedure. The webinar solidified my thoughts. After sifting through a ton of fact based data, the conclusion was simple. The chemicals used in flame retardant cushions, only slowed the fire a total of 10 seconds, but were incredibly cancer causing and toxic. That was enough for me to immediately make the switch. Today, Susan sent this HBO documentary trailer to me. More proof, I made the right decision.
