Greenpeace released in 2017 a report condemning the use of per- and polyfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) in the clothing industry. Those chemicals revealed to be extremely hazardous and persistent in the environment. As a matter of fact, accumulation of PFCs were found in the liver of polar bears and in human blood as well as in secluded mountains and lakes. It is therefore of the utmost importance that nature enthusiasts keep their beloved outdoor spaces PFCs free. With Dimpora, we are addressing the need of replacing fluorinated polymers in the apparel industry with a new material with equal if not better properties.
