The Story of Microfibers Will Make You Look At Your Laundry Differently

Story of Microfibers polyester laundry pollution eco fashion green

The makers of the landmark short film Story of Stuff now bring us The Story of Microfibers. This film takes a look at the lifecycle of synthetic fabrics like polyester.

“Our dress shirts, yoga pants, fleeces, and even underwear are all increasingly made of synthetic materials — plastic, in fact. But these synthetic fabrics, from which 60% of all clothing on earth is made, have a big hidden problem: when they’re washed, they release tiny plastic bits — called microfibers — that flow down our drains, through water treatment plants, and out into our rivers, lakes and oceans by the billions.”

Everybody’s got a story. K’Jon’s involves working on his craft while working a day job to support his family in Detroit and slowly making a name for himself for 10 years before his breakthrough song “On The Ocean”. I think this is one of the most beautiful, well written, well phrased songs I’ve heard in a long time. K’Jon’s “On The Ocean” peaked at 12 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Billboard charts while the quality levels of most R&B/Hip-Hop songs has sunken to new depths- The Dream anyone?
