Act Now to Make them Pay
A handful of companies–3M, Dupont and others–have contaminated the blood of 98% of people on the planet. PFAS chemicals, which did not even exist 50 years ago, are now found worldwide–in animals, people, air, food, and drinking water. PFOA and PFOS are two legacy chemicals. No longer produced in the US, they nevertheless contaminate drinking water in communities throughout the country. Because PFOA and PFOS are toxic at very low levels, states and municipalities are spending billions to get these toxic chemicals out of the water supply.
That’s not right. The companies that profited by contaminating the entire world should pay for the mess they made–instead of shifting the burden to taxpayers.
Act Now on Mind the Store
Burger King makes 2 million whoppers a day, each one of them wrapped in packaging with toxic PFAS. All of that toxic PFAS will be on the planet for tens of thousands of years. Tell Burger King it’s time for a change.
