A SOLUTION TO TEXTILE INDUSTRY POLLUTION

The textile industry is one of the most pollutants releasing industries of the world. Surveys show that nearly five percent of all landfill space is consumed by textile waste. Besides, 20 percent of all fresh water pollution is made by textile treatment and dyeing. The reason for being so highly pollutant is because it is a trifecta of issues

  • Waste - Clothing and textiles leave tons of waste that end up at dumps all over the world. The clothing takes time to breakdown, and some textiles, like polyester, even create chemical pollution.
  • Pollution - Air and water gets polluted because of textiles. The dyes used for textiles are used with water and chemicals, which then has to be dumped. The burning of all the products inside the mills also pollutes the air with chemicals.
  • Use of resources - The washing of textiles and the dying process leads to millions of gallons of water being used annually, which can be a real issue in some places.

Unfortunately even taking in consideration those well known facts, European people are throwing in average 21 kg of clothes each year while renewing their wardrobe. One of the main reason for that is fiber texture deterioration and stains on the clothes. Hydrop products are offering the possibility to extend the life cycle of clothes by reducing washing, ironing and stains.
