Remember: We share the air

Did you know that your cologne, soap or hairspray could be triggering a serious health reaction in people around you? The chemicals in scented products are made up of chemicals that vapourize into the air, are easily inhaled and can cause reactions for people with asthma, allergies, migraines or chemical sensitivities. Please consider your classmates and choose scent-free alternatives instead.
