The first step is to avoid commercial PFAS containing products. Some of these products may include:
non-stick cooking utensils, pots and pans, popcorn bags, take out containers (i.e. pizza boxes), carpeting and staining treatments, stain and water repellent clothing and goods, some camping and outdoor goods.
Communicate your concerns to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
Request to be involved in the water testing and treatment process.
Become involved with coalitions, and/or town hall, local, and state meetings.
Write to your legislator encouraging to pass the Michigan bill proposing the lowest PFAS limit at 5ppt in drinking water.
Write to Wolverine, 3M, MDEQ and EPA to advocate and encourage more transparency of public information granted by the Freedom of Information Act.
Participate in public interest groups and/or action councils to advocate for environmental justice.
