% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When discussing sportswear you are really talking about polyester. An established sports brand using 120 kg of polyester (including recycled polyester) annually, will shed from washing their garments once a week; 728 million plastic microfibres per year.
This simple calculation undermines any statements that sportswear brands are sustainable.
Microfibres are the biggest ocean polluting issue you’ve never heard of.
