It's great to see the commitment towards being zero toxic. The challenges will always lie in supply chain adoption. It's time there was also greater focus and recognition of manufacturers doing better than average work . even in places like Asia where companies like MAS Holdings have committed and continue to innovate solutions to achieve their own zero toxic goals. Deeper thought and more aggressive action is what's necessary for real impact.
Seven years ago Greenpeace asked fashion companies all around the world to face their environmental responsibilities and take a pledge to stop polluting waterways with hazardous chemicals. 80 industries committed to ban such chemicals from their production line by 2020, and according to a new report by Greenpeace they have already achieved substantial progress.
Greenpeace believes that eliminating the usage of hazardous chemicals is an essential step towards circular economy because it would avoid the endless recirculation of toxics through recycled materials, and some Detox-committed brands are currently supporting the enforcement of due diligence which will make corporations legally responsible for their supply chains all over the world.
