Introduction to the Texas Toxic Tour


The Texas Toxic Tour is a project of Texas Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility - Texas PEER - an organization of public employees who are concerned with Texas's environmental policies.

Alarmed that Texas now ranks number one in many categories of pollution, Texas PEER has responded by developing a multi-media web site chronicling the state's environmental degradation.

Over the next six months, the Texas PEER web site will feature stories from the people who know them best, the people of Texas living their lives next to the chemical plants, sludge dumps, toxic waste sites, and polluting industries that litter this state.

The Texas Toxic Tour web site will feature over two dozen video and audio interviews with accompanying text, available in various formats for viewing.

ToxicThe red skull and crossbones icon on the Texas Toxic Tour map indicates an active tour site. Additional sites will become active on a regular schedule.
