Transcona Memorial United Church, as a community that cares about the health and well-being of all individuals, has designated our church building as a scent-free environment. Please refrain from using any fragranced or scented cosmetic products prior to entering the building. Such products include scented perfume, make-up, shampoo, body wash deodorant, hairsprays, colognes, aftershaves, lotions and soaps.
In some people, scented products may induce headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, shortness of breath and skin irritation.
While we realize that we cannot mandate people’s personal choices and cannot guarantee a completely fragrance and scent-free environment, we would appreciate everyone’s cooperation in trying to make this building a more comfortable and safe place for everyone.
In the coming months we will be working to use only scent-free cleaners and soaps within the building. The decision to become a scent-free building was made by the Council at it’s September meeting.
