Super Flaky Bomber


The ocean is littered with fashion’s plastics: synthetic microfibres.

Washing clothes releases 500,000 tons of microfibers into the ocean every year — the equivalent of 50 billion plastic bottles. 

The most common type of microfibre materials are polyesters, acrylic and nylon.

Polyesters are made from multiple toxic chemicals, and majority of them are not biodegradable. This means clothes made from polyester will take 200 years to decompose at worst.
