Washing Big Name Brands Makes Consumers Polluters

The evidence is revealed in the Greenpeace report, Dirty Laundry: Reloaded, launched today by the banks of the Marikina River, with activists visually demonstrating how toxic chemicals may leach from consumer garments and into washwater.  The launch is timed a day ahead of the commemoration of World Water Day, which highlights “water and food security,” this year’s theme.

Greenpeace today released evidence that hazardous chemical residues in clothing items sold by major brands are released into public waterways when washed by consumers. Upon entering our rivers, lakes and seas, these chemicals then break down into even more toxic and hormone-disrupting substances.
