How important is the air you breath? How important that it is kept clean and healthy?
Such questions but with the focus on the plastic pollution originating from synthetic fabrics are addressed in this short documentary by the NGO Plastic Soup Foundation.
You probably may have already heard about consuming synthetic fibres through the liquids you drink, or the food you eat (including plastic contaminated vegetables). However, inhaling synthetics does not seem to be great either.
One of the first researches delving into the subject was on workers in the nylon stockings factory. The findings shown that 30% of workers developed respiratory problems with symptoms so severe that they had to stop working. Working with synthetic (plastic) fibres may not be the akin story of our times to the story of Radium Girls - the time will tell.
