Are highlighters bad for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Highlighters are usually water and alcohol based, but they do contain chemicals that can leach into the environment after they are in a landfill. Some contain volatile organic compounds and xylene. These are often considered toxic. Their plastic casing is also virtually non-recyclable. So while highlighters are only a small environmental problem, they still pose a problem.
