    Interessant artikel.

    enkele citaten:
    “It’s the ultimate irony of course that while outdoor gear companies depend upon a pristine environment for their profitability, the vast majority show a total disregard for the environmental impact of their businesses. It would be unfair to single out any one company as being the worst of the lot as they’re all as overwhelmingly poor as each other.”

    “Whilst you may appreciate being kept dry in a downpour, you probably aren’t aware that the production of your jacket results in highly polluting toxic waste."

    Ik zou best eens het uitgebreidere rapport willen lezen.
