State legislators joined the Toxics Use Reduction Act (TURA) program to recognize 2017 Champions of Toxics Use Reduction at the Massachusetts State House. The annual event recognized outstanding leaders who are making the Commonwealth a safer place to live and work.

Square One is proud to have been recognized as a Community Champion for training staff and parents on how to decrease the use of toxic cleaning and pest control materials in homes and at Square One facilities. The project team visited homes in Springfield to provide education on asthma triggers and referrals to community resources.

Thank you to Senator Jim Welch and Representative Carlos Gonzalez for honoring Square One for this important work.
