State to probe development of 'green' chemicals - Los Angeles Times

State to probe development of 'green' chemicals - Los Angeles Times: "In an effort to reduce industry's reliance on toxic compounds, state environmental officials today will lay out a framework for transforming California into a leader in the development and use of 'green' chemicals.

The proposals are an attempt to change the approach to environmental health from a chemical-by-chemical squabble to a wholesale shift in the way industry manufactures compounds used in products as varied as prescription drugs, plastic food packaging, pesticides, cosmetics and household cleaners."

It's a step in the right direction, hopefully. Leave it to California to lead the way.
