Title:
A Red Card for sportswear brands: Hazardous chemicals found in World Cup merchandise

Abstract:
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.
