Truth of Fashion Supply Chains
According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the fashion industry accounts for about 20% of water pollution worldwide. Chemical management is the key to detox the fashion supply chains as hazardous chemicals can easily be discharged into waters and oceans during the manufacturing processes such as dyeing and finishing.
