Sport is meant to be a healthy pursuit, we want our kids to play sport.

But there must be a better way than clothing them in plastic, where shirts contain hidden carcinogens and hormone disruptor chemicals. If that's not enough, when you come to wash these polyester shirts they each shed up to 19,000 microfibre particles, which are mistaken for food my marine life and end up in our own food chain. The oceans are being turned into a plastic smog.

I would argue leading sportswear brands have turned sport into a human and environmental wasteland.

There must be a better way forward than this.
