Imminent Greenpeace Detox report pushes brands to the limit

Written by John Mowbray

WAKEFIELD – In the run up to the launch of the new version of the Greenpeace Detox Catwalk – due to be published soon – some leading retailers and brands have tightened up their existing manufacturing restricted substance lists (MRSL). In one instance, a leading European retailer has now outlawed the use of aniline from its manufacturing supply chain. This chemical is used as a precursor ingredient in the production of synthetic indigo dyes – so taking this MRSL to the logical extremes – it would imply the retailer has actually banned the use of synthetic indigo in its own denim collections.
