Beginning April, Greenpeace started testing a new standard for making T-shirts, bags and other merchandise that eliminates the use and discharge of hazardous chemicals. Eighty Apparel firms have committed to the organisation’s ‘Detox My Fashion’ campaign started in 2011 by eliminating the use of hazardous chemicals and their release to waterways by 2020.

The campaign till now used third-party tools and standards for textiles manufacturing facilities to address hazardous chemicals and ensures full supply chain transparency, according to a Greenpeace press release.

In 2018, the organisation started a pilot project to show that textiles can be produced in keeping with its ambitious Detox requirements.

While its 2012 suspension on the merchandising and gifting of textiles will remain broadly in place, Greenpeace offices are going to start using selected suppliers, who meet the new trial standards for merchandising. (DS)
