Groups want EPA to limit PVA in laundry pods, seeing microplastic problems -USAPosted on November 18, 2022 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
An environmental coalition and the green home products brand Blueland are asking the Environmental Protection Agency to limit PVA film used in billions of laundry and dishwasher pods each year, saying they contribute to microplastic pollution.
Other studies have found PVA in drinking water and human breast milk, raising the importance for the EPA review, Yoo said.
“It’s used in very large quantities, it’s going down on our drains and ending up in our water systems, where 75 percent of it is persisting,” she said.
The groups estimate there are 20 billion laundry and dishwasher pods used each year in the U.S.
