Library / desk lamp with green glass: 32,400 ppm lead (in the glass.) Tested with an XRF.
Thoughts: Is this going to harm the owner? Probably not. Can we manufacture lead-free glass for items like this? Absolutely, yes. Is manufacturing items with high lead content harming the environment and potentially harming factory workers? Absolutely, yes. Can we strive to have lead-free homes and a lead-free future for our children? Yes!
If you appreciate what I do (XRF testing of consumer goods and sharing the results here and on Twitter and Facebook!), the simplest way you can help support my advocacy work at NO EXTRA COST to you is to click on the Amazon affiliate links in the post or Amazon ads to the right on this page (or on the bottom if you are on your phone!). If you click on any of the links before you start your Amazon shopping as you normally would, then Amazon sends me a percentage of whatever you spend (up to 12% in April if you start by clicking on the Amazon ads on the side of this post!) – and you don’t even have to buy the items pictured! 😉
Also – when we reach $5,000 on my GoFundMe, Carissa and I are going to do another round of #GuerrillaXRFTesting at a store chosen by our followers (like the #GuerrillaXRFTesting we did at Target back in February!)
Happy shopping! & Thank you for your support! – Tamara
