High school senior turns science savvy into prize-winning research

Congratulations Sarina and good luck next semester at Grinnell! The problem with many chemicals that make their way into our everyday lives is that they are not tested for safety before we are exposed to them. We did make the switch to BPA-free receipt paper recently (no ink is involved due to the fact that we use thermal printers) in response to health concerns about exposure to BPA. This fall, we are upgrading our systems to be able to offer paperless receipts which will be emailed directly to the customer. In the meantime, will we continue to look for the best available option and review all information regarding receipt paper safety.
