ASTM D4236 PDF

Take action against corporate greed, learn new ways to reduce your impact on the planet, and learn about green products you never knew existed. If life were fair, taking time out to indulge your creative side through art would be a naturally green endeavor. You could paint a mural, mosaic a table, or take your children to a pottery shop without a single worry. But this is the real world, and in it, paints, glues, glazes, and even markers can pose hidden health hazards that we should be aware of. The good news and yes, there is some! However, LHAMA does not mandate that manufacturers provide consumers with an ingredients list, so the substances in many art supplies are often kept from consumers.

Labeling of Hazardous Art Materials Act (LHAMA) Evaluation

Art materials for consumers of all ages must comply with a number of requirements under federal law. Art materials that are designed or intended primarily for children 12 years of age or younger must meet additional requirements, which are described below.
