OSLO – Scandinavian fashion retailer Varner as well as Sport Holding, the owner of retailers Anton Sport and Intersport, have both revealed estimates of the microplastics shed from their clothing following a ruling in Norway.

The move follows a complaint from a private citizen to the Norwegian authorities related to the country’s existing environmental laws, which force companies to publicly state the total emissions of microplastics from the sale of products in the country.

Varner says that in 2021 around 130 kg of microplastics was released from the clothing it sold in Norway, although it said the actual amount could be anything from 462 to 16,329 kg of fibres, based on “various available reports”.
