Cancer: 101 Solutions, Prevent Cancer Now, Living Downstream and CASLE
CASLE was the focus of blogs about environmental responsibility. The blog series was written by Liz Armstrong, and 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. The movie’s creators asked CASLE to partner with them during its release tour. CASLE and EHANS hosted the Halifax leg of the national release tour.
Co-author, Liz Armstrong, of the book, Cancer: 101 Solutions, 2007, which listed CASLE as a resource on p.97, also featured CASLE in the blog series about environmental responsibility.
When Cancer: 101 Solutions was launched at the Prevent Cancer Now Conference in Ottawa, CASLE president K. Robinson was asked to present a session on Healthy Schools and to introduce Less Toxic Living expert Debra-Lynn Dadd.
