Recommendations for how to take action

  • How To Start

    Prioritize upgrades for cookware that’s over 10 years old, as it may contain the forever chemical PFOA, which was banned in the U.S. in 2014.

  • What Comes Next

    If you’re worried about forever chemicals, invest in nonstick alternatives like cast iron, which works great with high-tech induction stoves too.
