Feel beautiful, in harmony with ourselves and with the world in which we live, and more specifically in the ambient in which we live in: this is the purpose of the world textile industry that focuses increasingly on the eco-sustainability of its products. There is a huge demand for garments made with natural fibers market and is powered by a civil awareness on how important is the respect for the Nature, taking from our ambient only what we really need and that it offers us in abundance. We just have to look around to figure out how many possibilities there are, as shown delicate yarns realized thanks the milk, banana and orange peels until Eucalyptus leaves. In the name of the famous principle of "nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is transformed"
Researchers at Hong Kong Polytechnic have developed the first system to assess comprehensively the ecological quality of textile fibers to determine their environmental impact indices. They are focused on these parameters: the amount of oxygen produced and carbon dioxide emitted or absorbed for production; land use; use of fertilizers and pesticides; consumption of water, energy and other resources; risks to human health or ecosystems; renewable nature of fibres and recycling and biodegradability. Analyzing 10 fibers (organic cotton, wool, linen, viscose polyester nylon, polypropylene and acrylic types .2), natural fibers were found to be the most eco-friendly and sustainable for our ambient.
At the last place, after fibers such as polypropylene, polyester and nylon, we find the acrylic, absolutely the worst, The first one is the organic cotton.
