Toxic-Free Future makes its film festival debut!

Rose foundation film festival laurels

Next stop, Hollywood! 

Toxic-Free Future is proud to be featured at a film festival! The Rose Foundation for Communities and the Environment selected our video highlighting our research on PFAS in breast milk for its 2022 Grassroots Film Fest.  

The festival kicked off with a live event in Oakland, CA, and viewers can stream films online through September 29, 2022. Visit the festival website for a lineup of films and ticket information. We hope you enjoy these films as much as we have!

TFF’s video highlights the results of our 2021 peer-reviewed PFAS in breast milk study, which found PFAS in 100% of tested breast milk samples. The study, the first since 2004 to analyze PFAS in breast milk from mothers in the United States, found that 50 out of 50 women tested positive for PFAS, with levels ranging from 52 parts per trillion (ppt) to more than 500 ppt. Results found that both current-use and phased-out PFAS contaminate breast milk, exposing nursing infants to the effects of toxic chemicals.  

Toxic-Free Future is honored to be part of this film festival as a grant recipient of the Rose Foundation. And we appreciate the Foundation’s support of  grassroots initiatives that help build a world in which individuals, organizations, and communities are empowered to promote stewardship of nature, inspire people to take action, and hold government and corporations accountable.
