Kennedy. “Most consumers are not aware of how clothing fibres and microscopic pieces of plastic lint from synthetic fabrics are poisoning our waterways and our food supply. Clothing manufacturers cannot continue to deny responsibility for the economic, environmental and public health costs of microplastic pollution. We need to engage the apparel industry to help develop a consumer awareness and microfibre reduction action plan.”
