Picture this: you’re walking outside in one of your favorite places… you’re enjoying the beautiful scenery… and then you realize that your new jacket is shedding toxic chemicals into the environment.The outdoor gear industry has a toxic secret. Many popular outdoor brands use PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) to waterproof their products—from jackets to boots. The production, use, and disposal of these products pollute people and the planet.
We need to convince REI, one of the top outdoor retailers, to stop selling PFAS polluting products. Will you join us?

One of the last unbuilt sections of that loop would connect Christopher's Crossing to the Golden Mile. The City has been planning to complete that segment by extending Christopher’s Crossing south from Whittier straight through Fort Detrick’s Area B, a Superfund site on the National Priorities List for remediation still containing dangerous contamination. That’s a problem.

PFAS chemicals are a class of chemicals most in need of immediate policy action due to their wide-spread use in products, prevalence in breast milk and people’s bodies, and persistence in the environment. Known as “forever chemicals” due to their inability to break down, PFAS also persists in the waste stream, contaminating our soil, air, and water.
