Greenpeace has checked 19 fashion chains for their use of toxic substances and now publishes a list, from which emerge the biggest polluters – with some surprising results.
Many companies use hormonally active Ethoxylates, plasticiser and peri – and poly-fluorinated chemicals (PFC) to colour their products or to impregnate – and pollute as global waters. Which put an end to and to ensure, by 2020 a completely non-toxic textile production, the environmental organization called Greenpeace 2011 for the “Detox”. With their voluntary participation in the initiative 19 fashion brands have committed, to reduce their use of questionable material to zero until the end of the period. But not all are working.
Eyes on when purchasing dress – dresses with chemicals are often strained, which may irritate the skin. Make sure to go: always wash before first wearing
These brands are particularly toxic
Fashion brand ESPRIT and the sporting goods manufacturer Nike came off particularly badly in the current investigation, the results of which were now published on the Greenpeace Web site. Especially Nike have not sorted out chemicals, nor kept his word to release wastewater data. At ESPRIT, the production steps are for it but by no means free although transparent, “dangerous chemicals”.
Adidas, Levi’s, Primark, and PUMA form the middle of the rankings. According to Greenpeace, they have reduced their use of environmentally harmful substances while still not enough, had a real chance to be totally non-toxic by 2020 but – other than Nike and Esprit -.
The winners of the examination
A great praise goes to the fashion brands Zara, H & M and Benetton. According to Greenpeace, they produce largely free of toxins and make transparent waste water data, production and supply routes also. These current results confirm a trend that is already in the investigation of the past year has been.
Respect for the luxury labels…
According to the current study, luxury labels are by the way the worst dirt Finke. Versace, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Victoria’s secret the most pollutants were found. This should be mentioned, that they do not take part in the “Detox” campaign. It is so not to assume that anything will change this condition.
Addendum: Meanwhile, ESPRIT to the Greenpeace publication has reported. In a statement, it says: as a member of the textile Alliance and as a member of the industry association zero discharge of hazardous chemicals (ZDHC) work ESPRIT always, as environmentally-friendly as possible to make the supply chain and test all products on pollutants and the compliance with limit values. The company’s “Restricted Substances List” would govern the use of chemicals, all legal standards and was “in most cases even significantly more stringent than the legal requirements”. Pent-up demand but sees the company in the area of transparency.
