Did you know that over 50% of clothing sold by major fast fashion brands is made of virgin plastic?
A report out on Friday 11th June into plastics in clothing shared a study by the RSA into top brands Boohoo, Asos and others, examining 10,000 items for sale online. Friends of the Earth have estimated the amount of plastic in new textiles as 64%.
