Join the Greenpeace Campaign to Detox

The production, trade, use, and release of many synthetic chemicals is now widely recognised as a global threat to human health and the environment. Yet, the world's chemical industries continue to produce and release thousands of chemical compounds every year, in most cases with none or very little testing and understanding of their impacts on people and the environment.

Water
Water is central to our lives but it is also the world's most threatened essential resource. Some of the worst industrial pollution is contaminating the world's most vulnerable water resources.

Greenpeace is campaigning to stop industry poisoning waterways around the world with hazardous, persistent and hormone-disrupting chemicals. Launched in July 2011, the Detox campaign has exposed links between textile manufacturing facilities causing toxic water pollution in China, and many of the world's top clothing brands.

Nike, AdidasPuma, H&MM&SC&A, Li-Ning and Zara have committed to Detox, in response to the growing international campaign. Other top clothing companies still need to get a move on, to Detox their brands and help Detox our future. Join Greenpeace and take action.....
