Greenpeace said in Beijing that it detected dangerous chemicals in children’s clothing made by leading brands, including Disney, Burberry, and Adidas.
The environmental organization explained in a statement that it had submitted 82 articles of twelve brands to analyzes, and found each of these signs harmful chemicals.
“Parents who want to buy clothes that don’t contain dangerous chemicals face a real nightmare,” said Chih An Lee of Greenpeace.
Major brands have embarked on a “Detox” campaign. The NGO called on China, the world’s leading textile producer and chemical consumer, to stop using harmful substances in its textile industry. This is not the first time that Greenpeace has been involved in major clothing manufacturers.
