NEW YORK - New York has become the latest US state to ban the manufacture and sale of garments and textiles that contain PFAS (perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances).

Governor Kathy Hochul has now signed off on Senate bill S6291A which was passed by the state legislature in May and will come into effect on 31st December this year.

PFAS - dubbed 'forever chemicals' for their durability in the environment - are widely used in water- and stain-proof coatings for textiles but have been linked to major health risks including liver damage, thyroid disease and cancer.
