Negative Environmental Impact of Washing Machines to Hinder Market Growth
The washing machine market growth may get impeded owing to the risks posed to the environment by these appliances, slowing down the purchase of these machines. Research conducted by a team from Plymouth University in the UK found that one cycle of a washing machine can release over 700,000 microscopic plastic fibers in the environment.
The biggest contributor, the researchers observed, was acrylic, which churned out nearly 730,000 tiny synthetic fibers per wash. Pollution caused by micro-plastic materials is a growing ecological concern across the globe as these substances are known to contaminate food chains, trigger behavioral changes in animals, and disrupt the energy flow between organisms. The findings of this study were substantiated through a study performed by the University of California Santa Barbra, which also concluded that washing of clothes is a massive contributor to microplastic pollution in water bodies.
