Abstract [en]

Children are sensitive to exposure of endocrine disrupting substances that may affect reproduction, cognition and the development of allergies and cancer. Therefor it is of importance to strive for a toxic free indoor environment both at home and at preschools. The purpose of this study was to determine to what extent preschools are eliminating plastic to diminish the toxic environment in different municipalities of Sweden. The report will also investigate more specific how an information campaign conducted by the environmental office in Umeå affected the reduction of plastic at preschools in the municipality. The study included three different surveys directed to municipalities of Sweden, the management of preschools of Umeå and preschool teachers in Umeå. Despite the low response rate in the different surveys the result of clearing plastic was positive. Among municipalities of Sweden, 42 % indicated that they have started the process of clearing plastic, the management of preschools of Umeå, 94 % answered that the work has started. The preschool teachers in Umeå, 93% of the respondents stated that the process of eliminating plastic have started and approximately 2/3 of the plastic toys were eliminated. To conclude the work for a more toxic free environment in preschool in Sweden is progressing in a right direction towards a healthier setting for the children
