Less is More
70 % less water.
70 % less energy.
70 % less heat.
Think Global – Act Local
The Textile industry is considered one of the most ecologically harmful in the world. The amount of water, energy, heat, and chemicals used in the production of textile goods is astronomical. The United States Environmental Protection Agency reports that textile processing typically requires up to 132 liters (~34.9 gallons) of hot water for every pound (~0.45 kg) of finished product. Growing environmental concerns are forcing us to rethink the role we play and the responsibility we have in dealing with this environmental disaster.
Over the last couple of years, we have see huge strides made in the acceptance and demand of organic fabrics, and fabrics made from environmentally safer products such as bamboo. We have also seen recycled polyesters and nylons become important parts of the textile industry as it literally tries to clean up its act.
We have taken this 1 step further and reduced water consumption in the fabric manufacturing process!
Using the latest technologies and equipment, we have developed a fabric processing system that significantly reduces the amount of water consumed during the manufacturing of polyester fabrics.
The Future Matters
On average producing 1 meter (~1.1 yards) of polyester fabric will consume 13 liters (~3.4 gallons) of water and over 29000 kJ (~8.1 kWh) of energy. On the other hand, producing 1 meter (~1.1 yards) of Eco Polyester fabric will only consume 3.9 liters (~1 gallon) of water and 8700 kJ (~2.4 kWh) of energy!
Since polyester fabrics are extremely versatile and comfortable in clothing and other products, it’s important to be aware of the processes which go into the making of those you buy, and reach environmentally conscious decisions about them.
