I will discuss the recent developments regarding how color-kinematics duality places surprisingly rigid constraints on gravitational EFTs constructed from the double copy. We will begin with a review of color-kinematics and highlight the graphical simplicity that underlies the double-copy construction. This background will pave the way for our main finding: the realization that color-dual structure with factorization is sufficient to induce an infinite tower of constraints on higher derivative four-point operators. Remarkably, these color-dual towers can be resummed, unveiling concealed particle residues, which are consistent with known UV completions of gravity.
