Pretty interesting article about apparel and environmental impact. Big ups to Patagonia for supporting this kind of research :app:

At the prices they charge they should have some extra cash on hand for doing good things. :M2C:

This article cites a lot of the same data in the study previously posted in this thread ... but it specifically calls out yoga pants :o as a leading cause of this kind of pollution.

Near and dear to some on this site, I'm afraid that the end of yoga pants is near! :sweat:
