    Either way the impact is shocking on all sorts of levels and this RTE piece is probably tip of the iceberg. https://www.rte.ie/news/2021/1108/12...fashion-chile/

    Especially when you consider that, whilst 'ordinary' clothes often involve a mixture and range of natural and man-made material, football shirts are pretty much entirely synthetic these days. Mostly made out of polyester, which doesn't decompose naturally, is resistant to sunlight degradation, & takes about 200 years to break down. So those 3 football shirts a year being pumped out by clubs will have a combined lifespan of 600yrs. They're just chemicals in textile form.

    A cotton t-shirt or a pair of jeans will biodegrade naturally (even though they will have been treated with chemicals at some point). A synthetic football shirt will out-live even your great-great-great-great-grandchildren.
