Over a million Big Mac boxes are used and discarded each day. And our recent test results show that those boxes may be contributing to the PFAS “forever chemicals” pollution crisis.
The Mind the Store Campaign, in partnership with Toxic-Free Future, has developed new guides for grocery and quick-service restaurant chains. We’re offering straightforward steps for chains to make sure their food packaging is truly free of all PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances).
In a new report released today, the Mind the Store campaign and Toxic-Free Future found that nearly half of all take-out food packaging tested from multiple popular food chains contains potentially toxic chemicals. The new investigation shows that all six food chains sampled had one or more food packaging items that likely contain toxic PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances)—chemicals known to threaten human health.
