Who will rise to the challenge and champion a toxic-free future?

During a recent investigation, Greenpeace identified several major international clothing brands, including the sports giants adidas and Nike, linked to facilities in China that are releasing toxic chemicals into our water.

Unfortunately, these facilities are just the tip of the iceberg. Across many countries, hazardous chemicals are being released into our precious waterways, poisoning our water and threatening people and wildlife.

Nike, Adidas, and other Would-be champions

Like any of their champion athletes and superstars who at times have stumbled, suffered setbacks and faced difficult decisions, these big brands have a choice.

Toxic facts

As much as 70 percent of China's rivers, lakes and reservoirs are affected by water pollution. During our recent investigations, Greenpeace identified links between a number of major clothing brands and textile factories in China that are releasing hazardous chemicals into our rivers.
These chemicals are a serious threat to human health and the environment.

Some are known hormone disruptors, whilst others can affect the reproductive system. Many of them don't break down in the environment, but instead build up in the bodies of animals and humans.

They can also be found far beyond their original source, transported in our oceans, atmosphere and food chains.

High levels of certain hazardous chemicals have even been found in polar bears! The problem is not just a cause of local concern. This is a global issue and demands a global response.
