Greenpeace Campaigner Kate Lin: „These ‚greenwashing‘ fashion brands are just cheating their customers around the world. They are posing as pioneers in environmental protection, but in reality they are still using ‚poisons‘ in their production chain and dumping them into nature. This may also affecting the health of their own customers.“
What do you pay attention to when you go clothes shopping? Two years‘ ago, average shopper was probably mostly unaware of the kinds of chemicals being used to make clothes and that their production was poisoning our planet.
But then, back in 2011, Greenpeace launched its DETOX campaign to pressure global clothing brands to stop using hazardous chemicals: We wanted fashion without pollution.
Your power is shaking up the fashion sector
Thanks to your amazing support and that of people like you around the world together we secured public commitments from 18 major textile companies to DETOX so far. This campaign set milestone after milestone, so that today clean production has become a new and growing trend for the textile and dyeing industries.
To ensure that these companies were making good on their promises to you to eliminate toxic chemicals, we have been checking up on their performances as well as continuing to pressure those big brands that have not yet made any DETOX commitments.
We’ve split them into the Leaders, the Greenwashers and the Laggards. Take a look at the top of this page, are you surprised with the result?
Let’s work together for a toxic free future
In 2014, your support is crucial to getting these Greenwashers and Laggards to start walking the talk to a toxic free future. Check your Greenpeace emails in the next few weeks for the latest news on this crucial campaign.
