A team of scientists in the UK has teamed up with a group of fashion designers to come up with the ultimate green fashion product.  They’ve created the CatCo laundry additive, a substance that when added to your laundry, creates clothing that pulls pollutants out of the atmosphere.  Here’s how it works: when you wash your clothes with CatCo, particles of titanium dioxide stick to the fabric. The titanium dioxide reacts with pollutants in the air and oxidizes them in the fabric. The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, which has supported the project from the start, says that average wearers of clothes treated with CatCo can remove about 5 grams of nitrogen oxides from their air per day. That’s about equal to what an average car produces in a day. It’s aiming to make CatCo commercially within two years. I’ve told you about some cool high-tech clothes before, but I these may be the perfect fit
