Is your takeout salad bowl or burger wrapper lined with a toxic secret?
Testing has found toxic chemicals called PFAS in many food packaging items. They can contaminate the food inside—but before that, they can pollute the communities where the chemicals and the packaging are made. And after the packaging holds food briefly, it goes in the trash, only to contaminate communities where the trash is eventually dumped or burned.
The packaging is used once, but the chemicals last forever in the environment.
After people like you called McDonald’s out for polluting the world with these chemicals, they agreed to stop using them! Clean Water Action is again teaming up with Mind The Store to make sure their competitor Burger King does the same thing. Testing has found that these chemicals are likely being used in packaging for multiple items at Burger King—including the Whopper. And they sell more than 2 million Whoppers a day.
Tell Burger King and its parent company Restaurant Brands International to stop polluting the world with toxic trash!
