Fashion waste generation is victimizing the Arctic

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2021-02-03 18:58:14 – USA

The Arctic is quite a place for dedicated scientists and researchers with the sub-zero temperature and deceitful floating ice sheets with 24-hour darkness. 

Our clothing industries are consciously contributing to a stage of growing veritable colonies in the freezing indigo waters of the Arctic, which has been settled by microplastics from the textiles, as researched by the Ocean Wise conservation association in Canada. 

Samples collected from all around the Arctic Ocean have been studied to contain 92% of the microplastic pollution which is being made of synthetic fibers and a majority of it is polyester and resembles fibers that are used in clothing; those particularly used in athleisure, cozy fleeces and cheap throwaway synthetic fast fashion, basically the entire fast fashion trendy collection. 

Dr. Anna Pasocha, research manager of the Ocean Wise Plastics lab, says that microplastics are a derivative of human activities and are contaminating the Arctic Ocean and we are not even aware of the extent to how harmful and pathogenic it can be in the future for mankind.
