Microplastic pollution from laundry: pilot study

In 2017/18 we undertook extensive research into the problem of microplastic pollution. Ocean Remedy had two primary goals:

  1. Research whether regenerated fabrics break down quicker or yield more microfibres than virgin fabrics... spoiler alert, they are better all round for the environment. 
  2. Seek solutions to reduce the impact of our products on the environment once they are in the consumers' hands... everything we do has an impact, and every fabric yields microfibres, we'd like to minimise this impact as much as possible.
