Books and CASLE
Three books refer to CASLE, as far as we know. The primary book is The Toxic Schoolhouse, edited by Scammell and Levenstein, published by Baywood Publishing, NY, 2014, which has a chapter featuring CASLE. The chapter title is a quote from CASLE’s president, Karen Robinson.
Cancer: 101 Solutions, 2007, lists CASLE as a resource on p.97. When the book was launched at the Prevent Cancer Now Conference in Ottawa, CASLE’s president, K. Robinson, was asked to present a session on Healthy Schools and to introduce Less Toxic Living expert Debra-Lynn Dadd. The book’s co-author, Liz Armstrong, featured CASLE in a blog series about environmental responsibility. The blog series was part of release of the movie Living Downstream – an eloquent and cinematic documentary film movie based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D.
In 1996, the AEHA (Allergy and Environmental Health Association, later EHANS) and Back to Basics were listed as resources in Free to Fly, by J. Rajhathy. Two of CASLE’s founders (Harland and Given) were founders and operators of Back to Basics, and CASLE (not mentioned) was a new organization finding its way.
