Dr Kerry Dinsmore from environmental charity Fidra describes her ongoing work combatting ‘Forever Chemicals’, or PFAS, in the environment.
Kerry explains how this worrying group of industrial chemicals have found their way into almost every aspect of our lives, from treatments on our carpets and our coats, to cosmetics, cleaning products and even bike oils and ski waxes. Even our food now comes packaged in PFAS!
But why are we worried and what can we do? Learn more about what makes these chemicals such a problem, how they earned their title of ‘Forever Chemicals’, and what Fidra are asking of supermarkets, policymakers and the public to make change happen. This is a big issue, but Fidra believe it’s a solvable one!
