The environmental NGO has made A study with a laboratory of 47 random garments from the Chinese firm that they acquired on-line and in the store pop up of Shein. There they discovered that a 15% of them have phthalates and formaldehydestwo highly toxic chemicals, in much higher amounts than allowed by European legislation.

To that are added other dangerous chemicals that were present in 45 of the 47 garments, although in lower concentrations. A report that has caused a stir due to the enormous risk it poses for consumers, but also for Shein employees, exposed to these toxins during production.

“While credible attempts to change the business model are rare, there is no shortage of ‘sustainability’ or ‘circularity’ initiatives, which for the most part are not a serious attempt to address the problem, but rather to greenwash.” – Greenpeace Germany.
