Toxic Textiles: What’s in Your Closet?

October 15, 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET

Fabrics often contain retardants, insect repellents, stain-resistant treatments, and waterproofing agents, which can be absorbed through the skin or inhaled.

Surprisingly, no federal regulations exist for chemicals in clothing manufactured outside the U.S., constituting 98% of all clothing sold in America. This lack of oversight has led to incidents like Delta flight attendants falling ill from chemicals in their uniforms and the surprising presence of BPA in sports bras.

Adding to the concern, certain federal laws even encourage using chemicals in clothing, such as the highly toxic flame retardants in some children’s pajamas.

Join us for an empowering webinar with Deborah de Moulpied, Anticancer’s green living expert. You will learn which textiles to be cautious of and, more importantly, how to protect yourself from harmful chemicals in your clothing and fabrics. You will also learn practical tips for detoxing your wardrobe and making safer choices for yourself and your family.

There will be a live Q&A at the end of the webinar.

Interested in the topic but can’t attend live? Register anyway, and we’ll send you the recording.
