Sustainable Fabrics Reducing The Impact Of Microplastics On The Planet

Sustainable Fabrics Reducing The Impact Of Microplastics On The Planet

Melanie Windridge of Forbes reports on Polartec, a sustainable clothing brand that is reducing the impact of microplastics on the planet.

The C3 Take
  • Microplastics are tiny, trace amounts of plastic that come from clothing and other products.
  • Microplastics affect our ecosystem and are dangerous to the planet.
  • Polartec has designed clothing that is made from recycled materials and emits fewer microplastics, benefitting the planet.

“What might not be obvious, is that our clothing also sheds microfibres, which is a type of microplastics. These mostly come from the materials used to make clothing, and it’s not just the synthetic ones that shed potentially harmful substances. Every type of material creates debris—from the start of its production until it reaches the consumer, and throughout its lifetime while in use.”
