BRUSSELS – 25 NGOs have launched a new campaign urging the European Union to “stop the runaway overproduction of textiles.” The groups claim that decades of voluntary self-regulation have led to devastating environmental and social consequences in global fashion supply chains. The Plastic Soup Foundation, Environmental Coalition on Standards (ECOS) and Future in Our Hands are among the NGOs now calling on the EU to penalise fast fashion producers.
