Fundraiser will support worldwide mercury regulation

Hoffman Estates, IL (PRWEB) December 16, 2013 –In keeping with the giving spirit of the holiday season, will donate a percentage of all sales to support the Mercury Policy Project (MPP).

MPP works to promote policies to eliminate mercury uses and reduce the export and trafficking of mercury, significantly impacting mercury exposure locally, nationally, and internationally.

Products that contain mercury create problems during production, use and disposal, and are predominantly used in dental amalgam, fluorescent lamps, thermostats, computers, auto switches, soaps and detergents. This fundraiser will promote efforts focusing on the use of dental amalgam.

Readers will have the opportunity to make donations to help the project’s leaders continue their mission and to positively impact the health of people worldwide, as well as the environment. Funds will go towards ongoing training for dentists, educating the public, and rewriting dental school curriculum.
