In its latest campaign report” Toxic Threads: Polluting Paradise , Greenpeace called Gap, Inc. for its relationship with PT Gistex Group, a textile manufacturer whose NGO is dumping industrially, which contains a cocktail of toxic and dangerous chemicals and corrosive water, directly into the Citarum River in WestJava, Indonesia. The report calls on Gap to cooperate with the supplier to eliminate the use and dumping of environmentally harmful chemicals from its processes.

At the end of October 2014, Tchibo signed the rehab contract – in December, Lidl, the second largest discount in the world, followed, then the Rewe Group, which includes the 2,250 penny Market stores. On 31 March, Greenpeace announced that Aldi, one of the world`s ten largest retailers, has joined the detoxification movement and has committed to removing all hazardous chemicals from their textile products by 1 January 2020.

About 72% of brands are also working to disclose their supplier lists up to Tier2/Tier3 wet treatment, where the largest use of chemicals and the greatest water pollution occur. Most advanced brands intend to expand this approach to fibre production and address the growing use of viscose. However, it warns that 85% of the textile industry is still not doing enough to eliminate hazardous chemicals and improve working conditions in factories.

The company has voluntarily committed to complying with the guidelines of the Detox Solution Commitment, which aims to eliminate toxic chemicals currently used in the fashion industry by 2020.
