Greenpeace launches new report

Written by John Mowbray

GreenpeaceBEIJING – After having withdrawn all of its own textile merchandise due to contamination, Greenpeace is increasing the pressure on fashion brands with a new report that identifies high levels of toxic chemicals found on clothing items at companies such as Tommy Hilfiger, Armani, Metersbonwe, Esprit, Mango, Calvin Klein, Jack & Jones and Victoria’s Secret. Some of these contaminants, such as phthalates and NPE’s, are exactly the same chemicals found recently on Greenpeace clothing and merchandise, which illustrates the complexities and the opaque nature of the global textile supply chain.
