C&A declared their participation in the Microfibre 2030 Commitment. By signing, it joins more than 80 other fashion industry players in adopting targeted, cooperative action to address textile fiber fragmentation into the environment and to move toward zero fiber shedding impacts. C&A joins other signatories like Patagonia, Nike, and adidas.
Suzanne McKenna, Chief Range & Sustainability Officer at C&A Europe, said that by taking part in the microfiber 2030 Commitment, the company is able to effectively assist research addressing microfiber shedding. It is essential that they take action right away. Microfibers have the potential to harm people, animals, and the environment. Together, they can find the underlying causes of microfibre contamination and stop it in its tracks.
Dr. Kelly Sheridan, Research Director at The Microfibre Consortium, said that they are delighted to welcome C&A as a signatory to the Microfibre 2030 Commitment, joining them in their industry-wide effort to reduce microfibre release to protect our environment.
Textile items shed microfibers that could be dangerous during the course of the product lifecycle. As a new signatory to the Microfibre 2030 Commitment, C&A will test the release of microfibers during domestic laundry on at least eight different fabrics each year in order to contribute to research into fiber fragmentation.
These tests will be carried out in accordance with the quantitative methodology created by the Consortium and carried out by Intertek, the initiative's partner laboratory. The test results will be published on The Microfibre Data Portal in order to promote the Consortium's overall research and spur industry action.
Suzanne McKenna, Chief Range & Sustainability Officer at C&A Europe, added that they are happy to work with partners from throughout the textiles business. It goes without saying that a collaborative effort is required for this. They aim to encourage industry stakeholders to participate because of this. Together, they can significantly reduce textile microfiber contamination.
