Toxic-Free Future

Big news for Big Mac lovers! McDonald's has committed to eliminating PFAS from its packaging by 2025. We commend McDonald's for this positive step but think they could do better by speeding up their timeline to align with state mandates that go into effect sooner.

"The science indicates that exposure to PFAS can damage our immune response, raise cholesterol, and cause other health problems," said Toxic-Free Future Science Director Erika Schreder. "These toxic chemicals last forever in the environment and contaminate drinking water. Especially now, as we fight a pandemic, we need to minimize exposures to toxic chemicals like PFAS that can make us more vulnerable to Covid-19 and its complications."

Your move, Burger King!

We are saddened to learn of the passing of Deb Abrahamson, a powerful environmental justice advocate from the Spokane tribe. Deb fought tirelessly for uranium cleanup on the Spokane Indian Reservation and for the preservation of clean water, air and land. https://t.co/6jrnGTmlaz https://t.co/GWzOCzugrj

@Mike_Schade: Since we started this investigation, four out of six chains we tested have announced public time bound goals to ban #PFAS in food packaging. The only ones that haven’t yet are @BurgerKing and @Wendys. #MindTheStore https://t.co/bCtYCQXIdo

"We appreciate McDonald's taking this important action and heeding our call. However, four years is far too long for their customers and frontline communities to continue to be polluted by these unnecessary forever chemicals." https://t.co/4EJUsR4keh
