July Virtual Green Drinks McHenry County – Say No to Toxic Pavement Sealants

July 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Cindy Skrukrud, Clean Water Program Director for the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club and
Isabel Bernardi, engineering student at Iowa State University and summer intern for the
Environmental Defenders of McHenry County



Along with blooming flower beds, growing gardens and the roar of lawn mowers and leaf blowers, summer brings the smell of the resealing of asphalt driveways, parking lots and playgrounds. The understanding that coal-tar based sealers and a number of other pavement sealants pose a risk to human health and aquatic life began 15 years ago in Austin, Texas. Today a number of states and many communities and agencies have halted the use of these sealants in favor of readily-available less toxic alternatives like asphalt-based sealant. Join in the conversation on July 1 to learn how you can help halt the use of these toxins in your community.

While we continue to be unable to gather together in person due to COVID-19, we can still get together virtually!  Thank you in again to Kim Hankins, First Vice President of The Environmental Defenders, for hosting! Please see details below.   Those attending will be in the “waiting room” and admitted together.
