Detox Catwalk

A Toxic-Free Future

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.

But the power to change this is in our hands - when we act together, anything is possible.

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.
