Kind of nice to see a company investigating the environmental harm caused by its products and then releasing that information to the public.


#3

So it’s cool if I keep wearing cotton shirts?


#4

Since I put in a wire mesh catcher in the tub the washer empties into this does not surprise me. The amount of lint and cat hair is quite a bit. On the plus side I don’t have to take a snake to the basement drain anymore.


#5

I get a good fistful of dog and cat hair in the traps every laundry load.


#6

Probably 85% Nemo hair :slight_smile:


#7

Well, shit, what the hell are vegans supposed to wear in cold weather now?


#8

I’ve never owned a fleece. They strike me as darned uncomfortable, and now this!


#9

Worse, with Global Warming fish don’t even need jackets!


#10

Vegetablewear. Latest thing.


#11

Even better would be immediate action by Patagonia to pull their microplastic products or at the very minimum put a large disclaimer in their sales display until they better understand the findings and how to address it.


#12

Same as warm climates: grow up, or die.


#13

How much of these plastics have I inhaled/consumed this year?


#14

All wool all the time for me.
Well, most of the time.


#15

I bet this is true for the Uniqlo style fleeces too.


#16

Depends on where they grow the cotton. Australian cotton farming is catastrophic from a water-use POV.


#17

Is it bad that I read this and then thought “when was the last time I washed my jackets?”
