Toxic Threads - Product Testing Results
Our latest Detox campaign report found residues of a variety of hazardous chemicals in clothing made by 20 global fashion brands. This page contains examples of the results we found including widespread use of nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs), which break down in the environment to form hormone-disrupting chemicals.
It is important to note that the levels of chemicals detected are not known to constitute any direct health risk to the wearers of these garments. However, these chemicals have a range of hazardous effects on human health and other organisms when released into the environment. The only way to deal with them is for brands to stop using them completely and find safer alternatives.
Browse the images below and share them in social media to pressure these brands to clean up their act and Detox. For more details please Download the Full Report or visit our Priority Chemicals for Elimination page.
