"It is imperative that we understand that whales are the canary in the coalmine for our relationship with chemical pollutants." This #OrcaActionMonth, tell @REI to protect orcas & #BanPFAS from the products it sells! ➡️ https://t.co/MAwIsTK8LG https://t.co/R4Rkfo7vTR https://t.co/q450lJvNlj

Washington state is one step closer to bans on harmful chemicals in products like #PFAS in home textiles, organohalogen flame retardants in electronics & #phthalates in personal care products. Washington continues to lead the way! https://t.co/FTiVbithEy https://t.co/c2nCBjKUhm

🙌 Good news for Washington state! @EcologyWA has found safer, PFAS-free alternatives for five types of food packaging, in addition to the four it identified last year, triggering a ban on #PFAS in those products by 2024. #BanPFAS https://t.co/Xqb4hJoxec https://t.co/XD8IuaUg8O

This sad story points to the massive problem of #PFAS polluting our water, soil, food & even breast milk. That's why we continue to push for meaningful restrictions on the use of these forever chemicals & bans on PFAS in products we use everyday! https://t.co/Cq7uziyEkt

@SaferChemicals: "We can’t depend on voluntary measures when it comes to protecting public health. It’s time for Congress to take action by passing The Keep Food Containers Safe From #PFAS Act" ➡️Tell Congress: Make food packaging PFAS-free! https://t.co/47tPL0K8cB https://t.co/XrCmQlDZo2

From @waltkane on our #PFAS in textiles report. The convenience of stain- & water-resistance in clothes & home goods shouldn't come at the cost of exposure to PFAS! Alternatives are available. It's up to retailers like @REI to #BanPFAS from all products! https://t.co/GikKLISb64 https://t.co/BUeoAds6UI
