PTC Scent-reduced Space Policy

Part of PTC’s mission is that we are rooted in diversity and committed to building inclusive community. This is an ongoing invitation to a practice of openness, compassion and constant learning.

An increasing number of people in our community are harmed by a variety of common chemicals and fragrances — due to allergies, asthma or Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, they may have difficulty breathing, migraine headaches, flu-like symptoms and more. When we come to PTC having used products on our bodies or clothing that include fragrances or chemicals, those who are allergic or sensitive are faced with the choice to stay and get sick or leave and be excluded.

We are aiming for a scent-free environment. Ways you can contribute when visiting or working at PTC:

  • Do not wear perfume/cologne (even those containing “natural” or essential oil fragrances)
  • Avoid scented laundry and personal care products

Please practice with this awareness at PTC, and help us make PTC accessible to all by coming to PTC scent/fragrance free. In the event of conflicting access needs, please contact us so we can collaborate on a solution that provides maximum access for all our community.

May we all be healthy and free from harm.
