This past year it was a bit unsettling when Greenpeace released it’s Toxic Threads report, which states that hazardous, potentially cancer-causing chemicals were used during the manufacturing process of many clothing companies.

Since the release of that report, many companies have revamped their manufacturing processes, and Victoria’s Secret (who was named to be one of the worst offenders) has committed to go toxic free.

Greenpeace stated that Victoria’s Secret has “little or no policy or program for chemicals management, and no commitment to zero discharges.” The most unsettling discovery was that hormone-disrupting phthalates were found in underwear from Victoria’s Secret.

That embarrassing announcement has led Victoria’s Secret to agree to disclose discharge data from 80 percent of its entire global supply chain by the end of 2013. Hopefully this will inspire other toxic companies to follow suit.
