OSLO – The Nordic Swan is believed to be the first eco-label to include details of microplastics release for garments containing synthetic fibres, such as polyester, among its environmental requirements.

The Nordic Swan is the official sustainability eco-label for the Nordic countries, which include Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, and covers a wide variety of consumer products including textiles.

The new Nordic Swan criteria, which came into effect last month, does not yet set any threshold for the amount of microplastics shed during home laundry but it does require brands to measure and report fibre fragmenting.
