Azi, bio materiale: bumbac organic

In sfarsit, ajung sa scriu si despre bumbacul organic pe care l-am cumparat pt Ioan, cu toate ca se fac aproape 2 luni de cand l-am adus in tara. Am luat si materiale pt scutece, pt hainute si fir, iar raportul calitate-pret este ff bun (dupa ce am vazut cateva sute de site-uri din toata Europa, SUA, India, Australia si Noua Zeelanda, asa zic). Este adevarat ca diferenta o face si cat de bun e client service-ul, cat costa transportul si cat de bine merge site-ul :) ))

A crescut mult Printul nostru iarna asta. In curand sare din masura 92 si ma uit ca manecile bluzitelor intra la apa in fiecare zi. Iar scutecele nu ii mai sunt de ajuns… Tanti a facut deja pantalonasi si bluzite din frotir gros si triplok si eu am invatat de la ea sa trag la masina si sa lucrez dupa tipar. Faptul ca nu mai suntem dependenti de haine importate (excelente, altfel, adica fara bubite) ma face sa ma simt mai bine. Nu stiu daca ati vazut acest articol din Financiarul: http://www.financiarul.ro/2012/11/21/substante-toxice-in-haine-ale-unor-marci-de-renume-zara-calvin-klein-si-levis-printre-ele/,

care reia de fapt studiul asta: http://www.greenpeace.org/international/Global/international/publications/toxics/Water%202012/ToxicThreads01.pdf

La pagina 42 veti gasi de vanzare un tricou Armani care are o cantitate de ftalati pe masura pretului: 223440 mg/kg, ceea ce e cu adevarat remarcabil :(

Proba ca hainutele de copii nu sunt mai curate decat cele de adulti am avut-o anul trecut, in toamna, cand Ioan a primit cadou un trening de la C&A. Am oarecare incredere in producator, pt ca am mai cumparat de la ei ciorapi bio si au fost ok, 2 bluzite bio care i-au cam dat mancarimi la gat lui Ioan (oare vopseaua a fost de vina?) si 3 perechi de pantaloni bio ok. Ei, si am zis sa incercam si treningul, cu toate ca nu era bio … Dar rezultatul a fost mobilizator: dupa cateva purtari, piciorusele s-au umplut de sus pana jos de blande mancaricioase. Ei, si ce daca? Ioan e doar un copil alergic si gata. Numai ca pielea tuturor copiilor e la fel de subtire si ftalatii trec prin ea fluierand, iar ftalatii sunt cancerigeni SI alergeni.

Si daca nu aveti timp sa va uitati pe studiu, esentialul e aici:

“Key findings

• NPEs were found in a total of 89 articles (63% of all items tested). The levels ranged from just above 1 ppm6   up to 45,000 ppm.
• All of the brands included in this study had one or more product that contained detectable levels of NPEs. They were also detected in one or more product from 13 of the 18 countries of manufacture, and also in products sold in
25 out of the 29 countries and regions of sale.
• Levels above 100 ppm were found in 20% of the samples from the current study. Higher levels of NPEs were found in a higher percentage of the samples than the previous investigation, although the results were broadly similar overall. Levels of NPEs over 1,000 ppm were recorded
in 12 of the samples, compared with two in the previous investigation8.
• Brands with clothing samples containing NPEs at the highest concentrations – above 1,000 ppm – were C&A (one sample), Mango (three samples), Levi’s (two
samples), Calvin Klein (one sample), Zara (one sample), Metersbonwe (two samples), Jack & Jones
(one sample), and Marks & Spencer (one sample).
• Phthalates were detected in all 31 of the samples of the plastisol printed fabric. Very high concentrations  were found in four of the samples, at levels of up to 37.6% by weight, indicating their deliberate use as plasticisers in the plastisol print. Of these four garments, two of the products were manufactured for Tommy Hilfiger (37.6% and 20%), while the other was for Armani
(23.3%). The fourth sample, containing 0.52%, was manufactured for Victoria’s Secret.
• Two products manufactured for fast fashion brand Zara contained azo dyes releasing cancer-causing amines. While the levels found were within regulatory limits, any detection of a cancer-causing substance is unacceptable in clothing items worn by people around the world.
• A chemical screening also identified many different industrial chemicals or chemical groups, five of which are classified as “toxic” or “very toxic to aquatic life”, although the concentrations were not identified for the chemicals identified using this screening test.”

Recitind articolul azi, vad ca am scris f putin despre bumbacul organic si mai mult despre studiul Greenpeace. Ar trebui sa redenumesc articolul asta “Bombe materiale” si sa scriu altul despre materiale bio, care sunt organice si care pretind ca sunt organice, certificari si alte chestiuni de interes pt cititorii responsabili. Ceva si mai ciudat: studiul Greenpeace se intituleaza “Fire toxice” iar subtitlul este “How big brands are making consumers unwitting accomplices in the toxic water cycle”. Ok, suntem deci complici, nu victime! E si asta un mesaj de genul: “Suicide yourself and protect the planet”. Bine, atunci voi primii, noi ne rezumam la a proteja planeta.
