EU countries agree to textile chemical ban

from The Guardian

EU member states have agreed to ban a toxic substance widely found in clothing because it poses an "unacceptable risk" to the environment. Countries unanimously voted in favor of extending existing restrictions on nonylphenol ethoxylates to imports of clothing and other textile products. The measure is intended to protect aquatic species. Use of NPE in textile manufacture in Europe was banned over 10 years ago but the substance is still released into the aquatic environment through imported textiles being washed. more
