What is the Contribution of Synthetic Textiles to Ocean Plastic Pollution

Synthetic textiles account for 16% of total annual plastic production. Plastic textiles (mainly polyester, nylon, acrylic, elastane) shed mirofibers when washed and in this way enter rivers, lakes, seas and oceans. Synthetic microfibers - largest source of primary microplastic pollution - 35%. Synthetic microfibers leak 0.5 million tonnes - 4.4% of total plastic waste into oceans. Synthetic microfibers are extremely harmful to aquatic creatures and they end up in our food and water too

The Great Wave of Synthetic (Plastic) Clothing Pollution
