It's good news that Washington's #PFAS food packaging ban will start to go into effect, but we urge @EcologyWA to finish the job by immediately addressing the flaws in its safer alternatives assessment, revise its assessment, and fully enact the ban. https://t.co/Pzrztrn3cX https://t.co/ncbm6Wb9rI

@saferstates: ☀️🌊It's National California Day! Did you know CA recently banned 24 toxic chemicals in personal care products/cosmetics AND adopted a policy that would ban the use of firefighting foam that contain PFAS chemicals?

Pollution from toxic chemicals continues to disproportionately impact low-income families and people of color. It's a #SocialJustice issue as well as an environmental issue, and it's one reason why we fight for safer homes and a cleaner environment https://t.co/cZs8MADkGk https://t.co/D3T0e3bQDF

@SaferChemicals: Tell @BurgerKing: Stop making toxic trash! 2 million+ Whopper wrappers are discarded each day. And testing found they're likely treated with #PFAS chemicals. When thrown out, they can pollute the towns where they're dumped or burned. https://t.co/2DHuBx7Eyn #MindTheStore https://t.co/ZDeri5Jy1T

@saferstates: $690 million and rising: the amount taxpayers have spent on #toxic #PFAS cleanup and testing efforts. 😱 We believe the companies who produce the stuff ought to foot the bill. #MakeThemPay Check out our map breaking down costs here: https://t.co/C1RL0epQX1 https://t.co/N4YBtEEUkG

😋 🥞 Happy #NationalPancakeDay! Before you start cooking, make sure you're not adding a toxic ingredient to your breakfast: chemicals called #PFAS, which can be found in Teflon and nonstick pans. 🤢 https://t.co/O2JdMvixAN https://t.co/zFav2mPPal

🎉Advocacy works! After three years of advocates pressing the company to take action, TJX (parent company of @tjmaxx & @HomeGoods) will move to phase out several toxic chemicals of concern, including the elimination of BPA/BPS from receipts https://t.co/BniGgEY7Hv #MindTheStore https://t.co/wjSwfO1PXp
