Toxic chemicals such as PFAS are found in many common products such as clothing, carpets, fabrics for furniture, adhesives, paper packaging for food, firefighting foam, and heat-resistant/non-stick cookware. Unfortunately, such chemicals are toxic and stay in your body and the environment for a long time.
Elected and appointed officials in Virginia need to work toward a health-based limit on PFAS chemicals in products and drinking water.
Clean Water Action calls for the city of Alexandria to:
- Leverage their purchasing power and require that contracts for goods purchased for the city are toxic free
- Make sustainable chemical procurement a strong part of Alexandria’s Environmental Action Plan 2040
- Restrict PFAS chemicals in fire-fighting training exercises.
