The demand comes as the result of a year long investigation of toxic water pollution in China, linked to the production of the two sports apparel brands.

The demand comes as the result of a year-long investigation into toxic water pollution resulting from the release of hazardous chemicals by the textile industry in China. The investigation, published in a Greenpeace report called "Dirty Laundry", focuses on two facilities that were found to be discharging a range of hazardous and persistent chemicals with hormone-disrupting properties. These results are indicative of a much wider problem that is posing serious and immediate threats to both our precious ecosystems and to human health.
