PFAS – FOREVER CHEMICALS

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a diverse group of synthetic chemicals that do not break down easily and accumulate with time. 
The reason PFAS are called forever chemicals is because they persist in the environment for decades.

With the extensive use of such persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic (PBT) chemicals in a wide range of consumer products, there is an increasing global concern regarding its usage. There are potential health impacts associated with PFAS exposure. Consumers are also reducing the amount of forever chemicals reaching the environment and their bodies by trying to purchase products which are free from forever chemicals.
