Tesco commits to textiles Detox

Tesco has announced, for its clothing brand F&F, its commitment to the Greenpeace Detox action, avoiding potentially hazardous chemicals and releasing a complete list of garment suppliers.

Tesco joins other major retailers including Aldi, C&A, Lidl and M&S as well as clothing companies including Inditex, Benetton, Burberry, H&M, Levis, Mango, Nike, Primark and Puma. Excluded chemicals are those considered to be potentially bio-accumulative and toxic, carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction (CMR), endocrine disruptive or as having “properties of equivalent concern.” The commitment specifies 11 families of chemicals considered as “priority hazardous” including halogenated flame retardants (not PIN FRs).
