If you've been on ThatHelps for even a short while, you know that we've written quite a lot about toxic chemicals (known as PFAS) in human food packaging, water, and food itself. These toxic chemicals can cause significant health issues to adults and children. What about our furry friends?
This past November, there was a groundbreaking study performed by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) on toxic chemicals found in popular pet food packaging. What's particularly frightening is that the coating of some pet food containers contain PFAS, and as it even slightly chips off it can become lodged with other dust in the home creating toxic dust ingested by our pets (and humans too).
Sadly, according to EWG, no top pet food manufacturer has committed publicly to stop using forever chemicals in their packaging. So, let's join together in urging them too. After all, our pets are part of our family and we can be their voice.
