Online Workshop: How Worried Should You Be About PFAS In Your Clothes?

Workshop Brief

Per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances, also known as PFAS, have commonly been used in stain and water-repellent finishings of a wide range of products including textiles and footwear. It’s known that PFAS has brought considerable risks to humans and the ecosystem as they are very persistent in the environment, difficult to break down under natural conditions and accumulate over time.  In recent years, this crisis has drawn the attention of governments, authorities, organizations, consumers, and brands, and more and more restrictions and bans have been placed.
