Picture this: you’re walking outside in one of your favorite places… you’re enjoying the beautiful scenery… and then you realize that your new jacket is shedding toxic chemicals into the environment.The outdoor gear industry has a toxic secret.

The production, use, and disposal of these products pollute people and the planet.
We need to convince REI, one of the top outdoor retailers, to stop selling PFAS polluting products. Will you join us?
