The obvious culprits for toxins in the home are cleaners, detergents, and even processed foods. Few people realize the very clothes on their back could contain dangerous toxins. A new report from Greenpeace takes a look at the “monsters in your closet” as they seek to reduce and even eliminate the use of these dangerous toxins in the manufacturing and textile industries.
Their work in “A Little Story About the Monsters in Your Closet” looked at 82 different children’s clothing products in 25 different countries and regions. These clothes were purchased from flagship, mainstream stores like American Apparel, Disney, GAP, and H&M, to name a few. In addition to these stores, brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, and Burberry were tested.
In all of the brands tested, at least one product contain hazardous toxins.
