Clean Water Action and our allies have led efforts during this year’s General Assembly session to address toxic per and polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) substances by pressing for legislation to study the occurrence of these chemicals in Virginia’s public drinking water, and to address sources of human exposure.
Please ask your Massachusetts legislators to cosponsor H939 An Act for Toxic Free Kids.
For decades, toxic PFAS pollution, known as the forever chemicals, were used in firefighting foam at the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base in Oscoda, Michigan.
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).
