‘Forever Chemicals’ are polluting your water!


edf

Target: Food and Drug Administration

Dangerous chemicals known as PFAS (per and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) are all around us, from plastic bottles and takeout containers to disposable bowls and plates. And now they can be found in our rainwater. 

A recent study by the University of Stockholm has found alarming amounts of PFAS in our soil and rainwater — amounts that often exceed EPA limits. As contaminated rainwater falls, it threatens to pollute our drinking water with these dangerous ‘forever chemicals.’

Nicknamed ‘forever’ chemicals because of their ability to stick around in the environment and our bodies, PFAS is associated with a wide range of serious health effects – from developmental problems to cancer — and can accumulate in the body over time.

The FDA has a responsibility to stop the spread of dangerous ‘forever chemicals’ before it’s too late! Sign the PFAS Public Health Petition and demand swift action!

Tell world leaders you agree with Greta Thunberg!

Greta Thunberg is at COP26 right now — putting pressure on global leaders to protect our planet. Despite climate leaders’ tireless advocacy, summit after summit there’s no progress.

Greta has previously slammed world leaders for doing too much talk while lacking the walk. She dismissed world leaders’ empty promises to address the climate as “blah, blah, blah,” and like Greta, we want real climate action instead.

Add your name if you agree with Greta!

The youth climate movement is changing the world, but big polluters are doing everything they can to smear Greta and her message. Greta rightfully called this year’s COP26 a PR event that is just a “celebration of business as usual.” She needs your support in the fight for real climate action.

EDF Action is a grassroots organization dedicated to electing environmentalists, and they need our support as they better prepare our climate champions to tackle climate issues that need to be addressed.

Sign now to tell world leaders that you agree with Greta, and that they need to translate their discussions into action!


Get dark money out of climate legislation!

The Koch Empire is the most powerful big polluter backed political network in the country. Their latest target? President Biden’s expansive social investment plan the Build Back Better Act, a once-in-a-generation chance to protect our planet from further exploitation. 

The empire is now mobilizing their entire dark money fortune into sinking crucial climate action, just to save their bottom-line.

Add your name to call for an end to dark money in politics!

The last time a deluge of Koch money was used against legislation to this extent was when they successfully killed President Obama’s climate bill that would’ve put real limits on pollution. It’s the exact same play.

If Koch Industries writes our environmental laws, the climate crisis is only going to get worse. Our planet is more important than a billionaire’s paycheck.
