A Red Card for sportswear brands: Hazardous chemicals found in World Cup merchandise
This study follows on from several previous investigations published by Greenpeace as part of its detox campaign,which identified that hazardous chemicals are present in textile and leather products as a result of their use during manufacture. This is the first study that has specifically focussed on football kit; the products bought were all manufactured and sold as part of the World Cup 2014 tournament, taking place in Brazil between June 12th and July 13th 2014.
