LOS ANGELES – Apparel and footwear brands should be ready for more laws restricting or banning PFAS in consumer products, according to the head of a leading industry forum working to reduce the use and impact of harmful substances.

Nathaniel Sponsler, director of the Apparel and Footwear International Restricted Substances List Management Group (AFIRM) which represents leading brands including Nike and Levi's, compares the public attitude to the so-called 'forever chemicals' to climate change in that it's seen as a "tomorrow problem".

However, in a blog on the Phylmar Group website, he says that the industry expects legislators to implement increasing restrictions on the use of PFAS, along with lower exposure thresholds and increasing debate on essential uses.
