These two guys decided to create chemicals for certain companies. They worked hard in the lab to try and correct the perfect formula.
We have created an act to make sure that you are not creating harmful chemicals.

This chemical caused the whole town to be in complete destruction. Not only did this cause destruction to the environment, but it was a health hazard to the people that lived in the town.
The EPA sat with the manufacturers and discussed how dangerous the chemicals were to the environment and the people. The EPA established the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976. This is where they check over 75,000 industrial chemicals currently produced or imported to the United States.
These two women are from the EPA. Their job is to screen the chemicals. They can require reporting or testing of those that may pose an environmental or human health hazard.
