Throwaway Packaging, Forever Chemicals

This report is based on a European study, carried out by 8 civil society organizations, into the presence of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in paper, board, and molded plant fiber disposable food packaging and tableware, sold in six European countries: The Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

The aim of this study was to collect evidence on the widespread use of PFAS in disposable food packaging and tableware in Europe, as well as to uncover levels of background (i.e., unintentional) contamination with PFAS chemicals in such products.
