WHAT WE SAY:
We urgently need to replace billions of plastic food trays. But if the fibre-based ones that replace them require harmful and everlasting PFAS-based coatings, then we have created a devastating trade-off.
So we welcome this initiative from Zume and Solenis – creating a PFAS-free, grease and water-resistant coating for food packaging. Even better, they published the complete recipe online, giving the rest of the industry no excuse not to eliminate these chemicals. Finally, ethics before profit.
