Lately, there are more clothes and other products made out of plastic marine pollution – but is it really healthy? It is good to be creative and find a way to keep things out of the landfill but let’s not risk poisoning ourselves in the process.

Many of us are already removing plastic from our daily lives, so why would we choose to put it on our bodies in the form of clothes? When we sweat our pores open and we become even more susceptible to toxins. Do we want those toxic ocean plastics leaching into our pores?
