Abstract:This report discusses issues surrounding the presence of Nonylphenol Ethoxylates (NPEOs) in textile products available for sale in the Indian market, based on the study conducted by Toxics Link. Toxics Link’s report aims to catalyze actions in India to phase out the use of NPEOs in textiles and consumer products. It emphasizes the persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic nature of NPs, which can harm the environment and marine life, and potentially enter the food system. Additionally, direct exposure to consumers can occur through skin contact and ingestion, particularly among children.
