Safer Chemicals Healthy Families is a national program of Toxic-Free Future. Safer Chemicals Healthy Families fights for strong federal chemical policy and educates the public about ways to protect our families from toxic chemicals. 

We support federal actions that:

  • Regulate the class of PFAS chemicals
  • Phase out the use of fluorinated firefighting foams and identify safer alternatives.
  • Prohibit the use of PFAS as food additives or in food packaging
  • Provide information on where and how PFAS are used in the United States.
  • Provide states with analytical methods for identifying all PFAS in water and soil, and technical assistance on how to clean it up.
  • Provide states and local communities with funding for cleanup and water treatment
  • Ensure that all responsible polluters pay for cleanup
  • Ensure that water and food are comprehensively tested for PFAS
  • Regulate PFAS under the Clean Water Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (Superfund), the Toxic Release Inventory, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.
