Golf Refugees have calculated that your average polyester polo shirt, favoured by leading sportswear brands; Nike, Adidas and Puma, takes 66 ml of distilled crude oil to produce.

Now we are not mathematicians. Our calculations were based upon direct annual polyester fibre production of 35 million tons using 73 million barrels of crude oil.

You then need to add lots of other toxic chemicals to make your polyester shirt feel softer, more flexible and less flammable.

It’s a crude process.
