"Please Join OIA and Marten Law on June 30, 2022 for a partner webinar. PFAS, or per- or polyfluoroalkyl substances, are a group of over 9,000 synthetic “forever chemicals” that are used to make coatings that can resist extreme temperatures and repel grease, water, and stains. Many outdoor apparel and equipment companies have used PFAS to manufacture rain jackets, tent flies, water resistant hiking boots, fishing line, and durable climbing ropes. Research into the health effects of many PFAS have brought the chemicals under significant scrutiny from both regulators and consumers. Join OIA and James Pollack from OIA member Marten Law to learn more about developing state and federal regulations of PFAS, as well as the growth of PFAS consumer products lawsuits over the last year."
