More concerns on textile microplastic pollution

Written by John Mowbray

HEURTH – A new study commissioned by the German Federal Environment Agency on the sources of plastics in the marine environment has confirmed previous studies that claim textiles are an important source of secondary microplastic pollution. The study also goes on to say that microplastic textile waste from German consumers could equate to between 80 – 400 tonnes released into the oceans every year.
