Recently, many large clothing companies have decided to detox their companies by eliminating all hazardous chemical discharges from their plants and company product life cycles.
Nike, Puma, and Adidas have all committed to this transformation in their companies by the year 2020. After numerous tweets, petitions, and research, H&M has also hopped on board with this pledge. There is a lot of chemical run-off and polution caused by large companies, clothing or not.
A wide range of hazardous chemicals have been dumped into rivers in China that have been, and are, cause for serious concern. This pledge and commitment will bring about real change in the clothing industry. When a large company, such as H&M, climbs on board it shows that the change is possible and real.
