Environmental and health advocates call on Massachusetts legislators to get toxic chemicals out of children’s products
Silent Spring Institute published a peer-reviewed article today that details how widespread per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are in children’s products, including clothes, bedding, and furnishings. In response, the Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow, a coalition of 60 environmental and public health nonprofits, called upon Massachusetts state legislators to pass pending bills that would protect Massachusetts’ children from PFAS and other toxic chemicals.
