Connecticut has been a national leader in passing precedent-setting policies that reduce exposure to toxic chemicals and has been one of the many states who are leading the fight for comprehensive federal reform. We were proud to pass the broadest ban on Bisphenol A in the country back in 2009, covering recyclable containers, baby bottles, and infant formula containers. In 2011, Connecticut again led the country, passing the first ban on BPA in thermal receipt paper.
More recently, advocates and policy leaders in the state have pushed for more comprehensive reforms. In 2021, Connecticut prohibited the use of firefighting foam containing PFAS and established a take-back program for such products. Connecticut has also joined the growing list of states that have banned PFAS in food packaging.
