The negative impacts of the textile micro-fibres, fibre selection and fast fashion that degrade the environment were discussed by the UK politicians and fashion industry experts at this week’s Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) at the House of Commons.

These latest measures come as the impacts of fashion are coming under even greater scrutiny by politicians in Europe – not just the UK – and after the EAC launched its enquiry in June, which examines the impacts of clothing production, use and disposal on natural resources.
