Every time you wash a polyester garment micro plastics are washed into the water and eventually these micro plastics end up in the ocean where its killing the plankton and therefore the whole ocean eco system. Naturally I sorted through all of my clothes to get rid of the polyester ones. What can I do with them now? I don’t want to donate them to a second hand shop, because thats not ending the washing cycle. I could use the fabric to make toys which won’t get washed. But what can I advise other people to do with their polyester clothing?
