Bev Thorpe with Clean Production Action and CELA's Fe de Leon blog about the need for better chemical safety provisions in CEPA to prevent toxic exposures from consumer products.
The class of chemicals called PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) are often referred to as ‘the forever chemicals’ because they are highly persistent in the environment and will take hundreds if not thousands of years to disappear from the soil and groundwater where they accumulate.
Bev Thorpe and Brennain Lloyd gave a presentation for CELA on Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in Canada on October 16, 2019. Download the slides here: 1310-PFAS webinar_slides_Oct 19 2019
