Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Turn Down the Heat on Teflon

Non-stick cookware, also known as Teflon, releases a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) when it’s heated to 450 degrees. PFOA is linked to developmental harm and cancer. Chemical emissions from overheated Teflon pans have been known to kill pet birds kept in the kitchen.

  • If you use Teflon or non-stick cookware, keep the stove at or below medium heat.
  • Opt for cast iron or stainless steel pans for cooking for most of your cooking.
