Hazardous chemicals in clothing – Greenpeace report

According to a newly released Greenpeace report, high street fashion brands are selling clothing contaminated with hazardous chemicals that break down to form hormone-disrupting or even cancer-causing chemicals when released into the environment.

The report reveals that hazardous chemicals can be found in clothing from 20 leading fashion brands. All tested brands had at least several items containing these chemicals with the highest concentrations in clothing items from Zara, Levi’s, Mango, Calvin Klein, Jack & Jones, and Marks & Spencer (M&S).

Hazardous chemicals are both incorporated deliberately within the materials or left as unwanted residues remaining from their use during the manufacturing process.
