The California Green Chemistry Initiative seeks your thoughts
involvement as we begin to establish the blueprint for keeping
California in the forefront of protecting health and the
environment in a robust economy.  

Our time for this effort is very short.  The creation of a
viable list of options to advance Green Chemistry must be
submitted to Secretary Linda Adams by January 2008.  From that
list proposed recommendations for a final policy are due by July
1, 2008.  We have a tremendous amount of work ahead and look
forward to working with you on this effort.  

To facilitate the most creative and constructive public
participation process, we have entitled the Conversation with
California.  The Conversation with California includes a wide
array of opportunities for you to participate. I invite you to
join the Conversation with California and contribute to
developing a comprehensive chemical policy and long-term
environmental protection for California.

We hope you will join us at our first public stakeholder's
meeting scheduled for Wednesday, June 27th 1:30 p.m. - 3:30
p.m., Sierra Hearing Room, Cal/EPA Building, 1001 I Street,
Sacramento.  If you cannot attend, you will be able to listen
via web cast.  
A Website has been set up that allows an open and transparent
exchange of ideas.  We are A Journal/Blog space gives you the
opportunity to share your thoughts and see what others think
about the four main Green Chemistry topics areas:

Cradle to Cradle:  Through product design and industrial
innovation, produce products that reduce the use of harmful
chemicals, thus generating fewer emissions and less waste.  How
do you think California should move to a Cradle to Cradle

Green Chemistry:  Consider public health and the environmental
effects of chemicals during the process of designing products
and processes.  How do you think California should stimulate
Green Chemistry?

Toxics in Products by Design:  Identify strategies to encourage
manufacturers to take greater responsibility for the products
they produce that contain toxic materials.  How do you think
California should address the issue of toxics in products by

Toxics in Products by Accident:  Develop information on
approaches that encourage cleaner and less polluting industrial
processes.  How do you think California should address the issue
of toxics in products by accident?
