WASHINGTON DC - A new scorecard assesses 30 leading US brands and retailers on their work to eliminate toxic PFAS - so-called forever chemicals - from their products and finds that most have weak, or no, policies and commitments.

The scorecard, produced by non-profits the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), Fashion FWD and the US PIRG (Public Interest Research Group) Education Fund, gave most fashion companes a D grade or lower.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), called forever chemicals because of their durability in the environment, are widely used in the textile industry for their water, stain and oil-repellent properties.
