You can't make it up. Fashion brands used highly persistent and toxic PFC chemical C8 (also known as PFOA / PFOS) to obtain waterproofing properties for your clothing. After 30 years it has been banned, so what did the apparel brands do? They used another persistent toxic PFC from the same chemical family called C6.
And as with PFC C8 they will not disclose the use of C6 to their customers. Over the summer we will be contacting outdoor / sportswear brands and asking which PFC's are you using?
Feel free to join in and ask your favourite brand.
