Why the EPA is getting rid of toilet components
The EPA is eliminating a series of components that can be found in toilets across the country.
The agency says they’re too often used to break down and contaminate drinking water.
But that doesn’t mean the materials are obsolete, and the agency says the technology can be used for new applications.
The EPA says it has identified more than 700 components in toilets that are not essential for human health or the environment, and it’s removing them.
That’s part of the agency’s strategy to reduce waste and protect the environment.
The agency says it wants to use those materials for the new toilet components in a way that minimizes environmental damage, as well as improving efficiency and efficiency.
But many experts say the materials could have a more profound impact on the environment and human health.
For example, one key ingredient in toilet liners is a polymer made from cow fat.
That makes the material a high-yield source of plastic and rubber, and contributes to the release of toxic chemicals.
The EPA says the polymer can be made from materials that have been chemically modified, such as the petroleum-based polymer that makes up some of the lining in some toilets.
The EPA has made some changes to the material.
But other key components, like the rubber that lubricates the liners, will remain.
The move is aimed at reducing waste.
The American Chemistry Council, a trade group, says the elimination of the polymer is important to reduce the amount of plastic used.
