Chemical flame retardants are everywhere: in our furniture, our homes, and our bodies. Even worse, they don't work to prevent fires, and they are making us sick. So who decided that these toxic chemicals should be in all of our stuff? What can we do about it? The documentary Toxic Hot Seat has been hailed as "environmental filmmaking at its best - revealing, horrifying, compelling and hopeful" (CineSource Magazine). Come watch the movie with us.
