 Comprehensive Chemicals Policy Reform Minimize

MOFGA is an active participant in The Alliance for a Clean and Healthy Maine, a diverse coalition of twelve Maine-based organizations that have embarked upon a multi-year public health campaign to phase out the long-lived toxic chemicals that build up in the food web and our bodies. Through a series of strategic issue campaigns, the Alliance is targetting sources of persistent toxic chemicals to be replaced with safer alternatives. Over time, we will seek goverment and business commitments to phase out the entire class of persistent toxics in favor of clean production.
