Tell legislators to keep toxic chemicals like PFAS out of our food packaging!

PFAS or per and poly-fluoroalkyl substances can be toxic to humans and yet they are found in our food packaging (pizza boxes, bakery paper, microwave popcorn bags, and more).

PFAS been linked to:

  • kidney and testicular cancer
  • liver malfunction
  • thyroid diseases
  • delayed puberty
  • early menopause in women
  • reduced immune system responses in children
  • birth defects in newborns

The good news is that there are plenty of safer alternatives that are already in use. Tell Rhode Islane legislators to support the bill to ban PFAS in food packaging (H7307/S2068).
