Welcome to Clean Water Action, Massachusetts!

Everything is interconnected: clean water, good health, a stable climate, a healthy environment, economic well-being, a robust democracy, and justice for all—especially the most vulnerable among us. That’s why Clean Water Action aims to makes these basic rights and values central to all of our work.

Toxic Flame Retardants

Learn about flame retardants, chemicals that are added to everyday products such as highchairs, car seats, nursing pads, upholstered furniture, carpet pads, nap mats, strollers, electronics (including toys) and many more common household products. Many flame retardants are hazardous to our health. Over time flame retardants escape from the products they are used in and get into the air and dust around us.

PFAS: The Forever Chemicals

Learn more about PFAS, a class of chemicals that are used to make products grease proof, waterproof and stain resistant. PFAS chemicals have been dubbed “forever chemicals” because they and their breakdown products are extremely persistent, lasting thousands of years or more. Unfortunately, they are also linked to a wide array of serious health problems.
