EJ How To . . . Environmental Justice Publications, Links & Resources

EPA Region 7 does not currently have official regional guidance regarding environmental justice in place. It is a goal of the EJ Program to produce such a document in order to better serve the public and our colleagues within EPA Region 7.

The EJ Program, however, has used important Environmental Justice Guidance documents as well as key public participation material in order to both recognize and address environmental justice issues. Listed below are some of the publications that guide the EJ Program to better serve both our internal and external stakeholders.

Pesticide Sales Concerns Addressed:

Protect Your Business and Your Customers - Do NOT Buy or Sell Illegal Pesticides!

Region 7 has developed a flier to inform and educate marketplaces about the risks involved in selling unregistered pesticide products, which might be hazardous to human health, and about the laws associated with knowingly selling such products. Special emphasis has been placed on markets that sell imported goods. This flier has been translated into 6 different languages. The goal is that unregistered pesticides are removed from store shelves.
