Miao Zhang, the senior toxic campaigner at Greenpeace East Asia, answers questions during a press conference, in Beijing, on toxic residues in kids wear.

Tests carried out by Greenpeace on items sold by leading clothing brands revealed the presence of hazardous and potentially hormone disrupting chemicals in children's clothing.
