There's a lot of debate about sunscreen and it's confusing....
How often should I apply sunscreen? Is chemical sunscreen safe? Should I use mineral sunscreen? Or I not use sunscreen at all?
I've been working and living in central London for 2 years now, and I've only just started going on holidays... well long weekend getaways really... and one of the things that I've been looking for is sustainable swimwear.
The demand for polyester has been exponential over the years; in 1980, the demand was "only" 5.3 million tonnes globally but by 2000 the demand had grown to 19.2 million tonnes.
In 2014, the demand had surged to 46.1 million tonnes. To put this into perspective, the total fibre demand (includes cotton, silk amongst others) was 55.7 million tonnes - so polyester takes up to 73.4% of the whole fibre/fabric market!
