JUST BY WASHING


They were tiny and synthetic and in the greatest concentration near sewage outflows. In other words, they were coming from us.

In fact, 85% of the human-made material found on the shoreline were microfibers, and matched the types of synthetic material used in clothing.

Numerous studies have shown that small organisms readily ingest microplastics, introducing toxic pollutants to the food chain.

By sampling wastewater from domestic washing machines, it is estimated that around 1,900 individual fibers can be rinsed off a single synthetic shirt- ending up in our oceans.

The consequences of just washing your synthetic sport shirt(s) provide a huge quantity of tiny, toxic microplastics which enter all of our eco systems.

NOT IN MY NAME


British Olympian and the face of the London 2012 games, Jessica Ennis-Hill said: "I believe being a role model to young people is a huge honour and those in positions of influence in communities should respect the role they play in young people's lives and set a good example."
Just makes us wonder why Jessica Ennis-Hill wears and promotes Adidas sportswear who exploit young female textile workers. Do sponsored sports stars have any responsibility towards the textile workers who make their clothes?
