Gurnee and Waukegan: Pass an Ordinance Banning Ethylene Oxide Emissions

Gurnee and Waukegan are both home rule municipalities with the authority to ban the emission of ethylene oxide within their borders. We urge them to act now to protect the health of their residents.

Why is this important?

Residents near ethylene oxide facilities have cancer, autoimmune disorders, and other health problems caused by ethylene oxide. We demand an end to the release of this toxic chemical, which no person or company has the right to release into our air.


Reasons for signing

  • My sister lives in gurnee and my parents in lake bluff I grew up in lake bluff and this has impacted my family terribly...
  • My family lives between the 2 facilities and I'm concerned that this will affect our lives.
  • It's just wrong to pump out poison into the atmosphere. I was unaware of it until a friend told me about this issue.
