Away from prying eyes, workers are forced to use hazardous chemicals.
As a part of the Greenpeace 'Detox' campaign, 'Little Monsters' were designed to represent the chemicals themselves. This animation helps to explain and offers context to one of the Little Monster-campaign’s priority chemical groups: PFCs
Some of us have probably read news-stories about something commonly referred to as PFCs or perfluorochemicals. You may not know exactly what they are, but can probably guess that they have something to do with the environment and your health.
In this animation you'll see why chemicals like PFCs are used but it highlights how it affects people working with these chemicals and how bad these are for our environment.

“You might not be able to see them... but there're chemical monsters swarming all over the planet.”
Today, we live in a world filled with hazardous chemicals. These 'Little Monsters' have been unleashed into our lives and the lives of our children, polluting our rivers, entering our bodies and causing havoc from the factory to the high street, from the north pole to our own homes.
Together we can build a future where companies put people above profit, with laws that protect our environment and value our health. A world of innovation, opportunity and clean production. A toxic-free tomorrow we can be proud to leave to our future generations.
PFCs break down very slowly in the environment and are often characterized as persistent. But the power to deal without this is in our hands. Please visit the Greenpeace Detox webpage and see what you can do.
