The “ detox my fashion ” project was born in July 2011, to which many brands and fashion houses have joined with the aim of making the world of fashion a better place.
Greenpeace launches the challenge: to eliminate toxic substances from the creation of clothes.
In Italy alone, 51 national companies, 27 of which are located in the Prato production district, have joined the project effectively.
The third edition of the Detox Catwalk moves backwards: what will the brands that will have all the credentials and skills to be in shape for 2020?
reenpeace writes : ” For decades, industrial companies have chosen to use the environment and, in particular, our waterways as a dump for dangerous chemicals, without obstacles to effective government regulations. For local communities living near water pollution production facilities, this has become a daily reality. The regulations have not prevented the release of toxic chemicals into the environment, particularly in the southern hemisphere, because for these persistent hazardous chemicals, there is no “safe” level “.
Greenpeace is, in fact, a non-governmental environmentalist and pacifist organization known for its naturalist actions and for environmental protection. With this campaign, it asks the textile industries to take precise positions regarding toxic pollution as different toxic substances are used for the production of clothes by many well-known brands.
