Keeping PFAS out of School Foodware
November 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
Eat your peas, not your PFAS!
Most of us have heard about the movement to make school lunch healthier through organic foods–but what about the plate that it is served on? It may look compostable, but there’s often PFAS “forever chemicals” lurking in the plate. Sure, it makes it waterproof, but the PFAS leaches into the food and into children’s bodies, messing with their hormones during key developmental years.
Meet the champions who are working to make school lunch safe! Join Center for Environmental Health for an inspiring conversation on Wednesday, November 10th and hear from leaders on the front lines advocating for healthy foodware as well as the manufacturers going the extra mile to ensure their products are safe for children.
In this town hall, we will hear from a special guest who is a student fighting for safe foodware in her school and then have a panel discussion where we delve into the process of how manufacturers are eliminating PFAS from disposable foodware with the brand new GreenScreen Certification.
Through this conversation, we will answer your pressing questions in our interactive Q&A and identify ways that each of us are pivotal to a growing movement to transform supply chains toward healthy and safe foodware for K-12 schools and families’ backyard BBQs.
