“The Vermont Legislature gave its final approval Tuesday to a bill that restricts toxic so-called ‘forever chemicals’ in a suite of commercial goods.

The bill bans PFAS in clothing, makeup, menstrual products, diapers and nonstick frying pans starting in 2026. It also bans them in turf starting in 2028.

The tiny chemicals don’t break down on their own and are increasingly ubiquitous in drinking water and the natural environment."
