The garment production industry makes up between 5 and 10% of the global greenhouse gases that are released into the World’s atmosphere. Furthermore, laundering synthetic clothing, such as polyesters, accounts for 35% of the micro plastics found in the oceans, which could potentially end up in the food chain.
The dyes that are used to colour the garments can also be toxic for the environment; these dyes are mixed with water and make their way to the rivers, polluting drinking water and polluting the oceans.
