TURI funding provides what few grants do - education coupled with the safer products and the invaluable training on how to use them effectively.

TURI recently awarded community grants to five Massachusetts community organizations to educate the public about safer products and methods to avoid the negative health effects of toxic chemicals.

The organizations that received grants include Groundwork Lawrence, Silent Spring Institute in Newton, Press Pass TV in Haydenville, Hitchcock Center for the Environment in Amherst and Thomas Lebel, a boyscout and Topsfield resident.
