The first of several documentaries over the new few years. In “How Toxic Are My Clothes?” we see a brief introduction into the use of toxic chemicals in fashion production and its effects on the human body through wearing. This (as well as the website) serves as the first step in a larger goal of making the everyday consumer aware of the typical risks they face with the clothes they wear every day.
In addition, there are many studies which were referenced in the documentary. Please see below for links to them.
