In 2018, Washington State passed a new law to prohibit all per- and polyfluorinated substances (PFAS) in paper food packaging. The ban takes effect following the identification of safer alternatives as specified in the Washington State Toxics in packaging law (RCW 70.95G).
The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) is required to conduct an alternatives assessment to identify safer alternatives (chemical and non-chemical) to PFAS in food packaging.
Ecology is providing this opportunity for an informal public review of the alternatives assessment summary. Ecology is not required to undertake a formal comment and review period prior to starting the alternatives assessment, however the agency is keenly interested in your feedback and will provide regular updates and information related to the alternatives assessment.
Please note that this comment form is for the purpose of submitting a comment to the Washington State Department of Ecology. Your contact information is necessary if you want to receive future notices or responses related to this topic.
