What about micro-fibre shedding?
Microplastic and Microfibre pollution in the water supply is a growing concern, especially in the textile and apparel industries.
Ongoing research and improvement
Waste2Wear is very committed to the constant improvement of its current technology by working together with different universities in China and Holland as well as research institutes like the Narwhal Ocean Center and The Microfibre Consortium, to reduce micro-plastics into the ocean. The first step has been establishing a set of best practices to reduce micro-fibres, such as the utilization of highly-twisted yarns and avoiding the use of fleeces in products that have to be washed often.
