19 THOUSAND



2015 shirt by Golf Refugees called ‘19 thousand’. The graphic represents the 19,000 microfibres that leach out every time you wash a polyester or nylon sports shirt. These toxic non-biodegradable-synthetic-microfibres find their way through the drainage system into our oceans, where they pollute and mistaken for food by plankton eating creatures.
The numbers are mind boggling. From all over the world billions upon billions of these microfibers are polluting our oceans and entering the human food chain. Leading sportswear brands; Nike, Adidas and Puma were all asked to participate in research to try and find a solution to the problem, but they all declined. Profits before pollution.
I’ll have the fish, easy on the microfibres.
