We need the U.S. Congress to act now to fund programs to tackle the climate crisis, build the clean energy future, protect our water, and address environmental injustice.
Picture this: you’re walking outside in one of your favorite places… you’re enjoying the beautiful scenery… and then you realize that your new jacket is shedding toxic chemicals into the environment.The outdoor gear industry has a toxic secret. Many popular outdoor brands use PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) to waterproof their products—from jackets to boots. The production, use, and disposal of these products pollute people and the planet.
We need to convince REI, one of the top outdoor retailers, to stop selling PFAS polluting products. Will you join us?
We need your help to pass innovative legislation that identifies sources of PFAS into California's environment and restricts their use at the source. Act now!
Clean Water Action is part of a coalition effort with Toxic-Free Future to tell the outdoor apparel retailer REI to stop selling products containing toxic PFAS in their stores. Thousands of REI shoppers and co-op members have already submitted comments and letters, but we need to keep the pressure on!
Contact your state legislators and the governor right now! Tell them to oppose S2788 and H8089.
