We are eating our sweaters
Polyester clothing is making its way into our food
Gnarly but true. We are actually beginning to eat our plastic clothing. Here's why...
Polyester is one of the most prevalent fabrics in the fashion industry. Around 60% of all clothing made contains polyester as its cost and feel have beaten out cotton in the past decade to rule the industry.
Polyester is essentially plastic. It's a petroleum byproduct and it's often found in blends with cotton for t-shirts or solo in exercise and athletic apparel. I can almost guarantee if you stroll over to your closet right now, it won't take you long to find something made from polyester.
