The textile supply chain is large, complicated, multi-tiered and dispersed.

...and so is its use of chemicals.

  • >196 countries with differing and changing laws and industry initiatives
  • Contract manufacturing complicates management and transparency
  • Factory output, from waste to product, is a result of incoming chemicals
  • Extensive water use, soil & groundwater contamination
