Understanding PFAS: Harmful Effects and COPAR's Commitment to #noPFASadded Packaging

Understanding PFAS: Harmful Effects and COPAR's Commitment to #noPFASadded Packaging

PFAS-(Per- and polyfluoroalkyl) substances are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been widely used in various industrial and consumer products. They are commonly found in non-stick cookware, water-repellent clothing, stain-resistant fabrics and carpets, some cosmetics, and products that resist grease, water, and oil. PFAS are known for their resistance to heat, water, and oil, which makes them highly durable but also highly persistent in the environment and the human body.

The very properties that make PFAS useful—resistance to heat, water, and oil—also make them problematic. PFAS are often referred to as "forever chemicals" because they do not break down easily in the environment or the human body. This persistence can lead to accumulation over time, which has been linked to several health and environmental issues.

Why is PFAS a concern in packaging?

PFAS are synthetic chemicals known for their persistence in the environment. When present in packaging materials, PFAS can leach into the environment and eventually find their way into water systems and even food, posing risks to both human health and the ecosystem.

Certified Compostable Packaging either does not add PFAS or must restrict the incidence of PFAS…

Certified compostable packaging does not contain intentionally added PFAS and must be below a testing limit of 100 parts per million.

Uncertified compostable packaging tends to be inferior, cheaper and has no obligation to not use or test for the presence of PFAS chemicals.
