Innovating the green future of the planet
Together, we can make a difference.
At EcoaTEX, sustainability is at the heart of what we do. That's why we modeled our sustainability initiative after the UN's Economic and Social Council's three pillars for sustainable development: economic, social, and environmental. These three pillars, along with the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals, are designed to keep us striving to end issues like climate change and create a more sustainable future.
Sustainability is essential for our health and well-being, environmental survival, ethical labor, and economic success.
In the past year, clothing sales doubled from 100 to 200 billion units a year, while the average number of times an item was worn decreased by 36% overall. The Earth cannot afford to sustain the same harmful practices.
Our finishing process reduces water use, while also eliminating harsh chemicals and waste production.
CURRENT FINISHING METHODS...
The textile industry is the worst polluter of clean water after agriculture.
In a conventional dyeing and finishing mill, on average, about 39,625 gallons of water are consumed for every ton of textile processing.
More than 80% of the industrial waste water is discharged by textile wet processing mills.
We are creating biodegradable fibers from abundant, natural resources.
Cotton alone uses around 6% of the world's pesticides and 16% of all insecticides, which is more than any other crop.
Extremely harmful to the environment, it contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and pollutes thousands of liters of water.
Petroleum-based materials require significantly more energy to produce than natural or recycled fibers.
They also require large amounts of water and chemical use, as well as producing waste and pollution.
We are creating a biodegradable leather alternative from natural waste materials.
The fashion industry is one of the most environmentally destructive industries in the world. It is responsible for 10% of all global carbon emissions.
The cleaning process alone for animal leather produces approximately 650 million kilos of CO2.
While some vegan leathers offer an alternative to animal leather, many are often made from petroleum-based plastics and contain hazardous chemicals.
These materials are not biodegradable and contribute to large amounts of waste production and microplastics.
