The Environmental Audit Committee is a Parliamentary body that has been established to investigate the social and environmental impact of disposable ‘fast fashion’ and the wider clothing industry. The inquiry is scrutinising the environmental cause and effect of carbon, resource use and water footprint of clothing throughout its lifecycle. It will explore the possibilities of how clothing can be recycled, and waste and pollution reduced.
A panel of experts meet in Parliament to continue discussion specifically about the problematic effects of microfibres leached into our water tables through continual laundering of synthetic and man made fibres. This important meeting can be viewed here;
