COPENHAGEN - A new briefing from the European Environment Agency (EEA) spells out options to reduce the textiles industry's contribution to global microplastics pollution of the oceans.

The EEA, an agency of the European Union (EU), says textiles are a major source of microplastic pollution, accounting for up to 500,000 tonnes entering the marine environment each year.

In Europe, about eight per cent of microplastics released to oceans are from synthetic textiles, according to the report which is entitled 'Microplastics from textiles: towards a circular economy for textiles in Europe'.
