H&M Group, the leading retailer, have announced that they will be banning perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) being used in the products they retail on 1 January 2013.
PFCs are used in clothing and footwear as water repellents, but are known to damage the environment. H&M have become the latest retail group to move away from the use of PFCs, and will now use a safer alternative, fluorocarbon-free water repellent, called Bionic-Finish Eco, manufactured by the German company Rudolf Chemie.
