Simran Sethi, environmental journalist and co-author of Ethical Markets: Growing the Green Economy, tags along on a “toxic tour” of the Los Angeles area. These tours are hosted by Communities for a Better Environment (CBE) and lead participants through area neighborhoods where they point out the toxic release facilities in the area and detail the health effects on the surrounding citizens.
Below is a map of Los Angeles County’s toxic release facilities and their correlation to the neighborhoods with high percentages of minority populations.
