AMSTERDAM - Campaigners from Greenpeace are this month travelling to iconic remote areas around the world, such as the Patagonian mountains of Torres del Paine, to collect water and snow samples and test them for perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) in a bid to raise awareness of the widespread and persistent nature of this class of chemicals which, among other things, is used to make outdoor gear waterproof. "We want anyone who wears a waterproof jacket, even if it's just to take their dog for a walk in the park ... that what they wear harms the environment," said Gabriele Salari who works for the Detox Outdoor project at Greenpeace Italy.
