Per or Polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)
First synthesized in the 1940’s, PFAS make products non-stick, stain-resistant, and water-proof. Unfortunately, as little as one drop of PFAS in an Olympic sized swimming pool can cause harmful health effects. And PFAS are everywhere, including in the blood of just about everybody who has been tested.
Let’s stop the toxic flow of PFAS into our communities and bodies.
Toxic Free Kids
Toxic chemicals don’t belong in things made for children! Require businesses to disclose toxic chemicals added to children’s products. Ban the most toxic chemicals from being used in children’s toys, clothing, furniture and more.
Mind the Store
Who’s minding the store! We are! AHT works with the national Mind the Store campaign to encourage major retailers and big box stores to reduce their use of toxic chemicals and expand their selection of safer products.
