Plastic Fibers in Your Clothing Can Be Hazardous to Your Health

In the 1990s, "pleather" or "plastic leather" was being touted as the new replacement for leather. Today, plastic is going the way animal based clothing like leather has gone - not cool. Not only is more plastic showing up in our waterways and harming wildlife, it's now been proven to potentially pose a risk to our own health through the clothes we wear via plastic microfibers.
According research conducted by King's College London and French academic researchers, microplastic particles — which cannot be broken down in the body — and “associated contaminants” have been found floating in urban air samples.

It is time to reconsider overall how plastic has infiltrated our lives and for us as a society to decide to reduce plastic use like we've hardly considered before - for our own health, and the health of future generations.
