Why Microfibres Are The New Microbeads - Vogue UK
Dr. Lisa Cameron MP was interviewed by friend of Fashion Roundtable, leading journalist, Tamsin Blanchard, for her article on microfibres in the fashion industry. Dr. Cameron highlighted the need for more awareness for the issues of microfibres, as has recently happened with successful lobbying by the beauty industry on the environmental impact of microbeads.
'MPs are finally waking up to the issue. After the UK government recently banned microbeads, microfibres are next on the list. Dr. Lisa Cameron MP, chair of the recently formed All-Party Parliamentary Group on Textiles and Fashion, told Vogue: “The Blue Planet effect is sweeping across Westminster and it’s time for the fashion industry to take a grip of this movement. The campaign by the ethical cosmetic sector was strong [against microbeads], and if we can gather a similar momentum within the textiles and fashion industries then the government will act: there needs to be a strong policy agenda on the use of microfibres".'
