For more than a decade, Washington state has been a leader in setting strong chemical policies through legislative and administrative actions. Toxic-Free Future works with government officials and partners to fight for prevention-based laws that protect people, communities, and the environment from toxic chemical exposure.

Toxic-Free Future’s 2022 Washington state legislative priorities include a bill that supports toxic-free cosmetics, a bill to step up action on toxic PFAS, and continued implementation of the trailblazing law, Safer Products for Washington. These legislative and administrative actions help to safeguard our health and build community resilience that leads us towards a toxic-free future.
