STOCKHOLM – A new project scheduled to kick off next year which tackles textile-related microplastics pollution has landed funding to the tune of SEK 6 million from apparel brands, white goods producers and the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning (FORMAS).

Apparel brands and partners involved in the project includes: Bergans, Boob Design, Electrolux, Ellos Group, Fjällräven, Filippa K, Gina Tricot, Haglöfs, H&M, Peak Performance, Sustema, TPC Textile och Y. Berger & Co as well as other research groups.

While microplastic pollution in aquatic environments has been widely discussed for over a decade, the exact sources of these pollutants have been less clear. The issue of textiles shedding microplastics into oceans was first highlighted by Ecotextile News back in 2014 and, since then, public awareness and research in this area has continued to gather pace.
