Hazardous chemicals like PFAS don’t belong in our food packaging!
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.
Contact your legislators today to tell them to keep toxic chemicals like PFAS out of our food packaging!
You’ve been hearing from us for years about the dangers of PFAS and why it's so important that our Rhode Island legislators enact policies to remove these chemicals from our food packaging. We finally have the opportunity to get a PFAS bill (HB5356) over the finish line, but your representatives need to hear from you.
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).
