Clothing manufacturing used to be simple yet time-consuming. However, as demand grew, enormous fabric manufacturing corporations arose, allowing for the mass manufacture of apparel textiles. Improvements to the production process were developed as the company grew. To keep the cloth from wrinkling and shrinking, chemicals were applied to it. Fabrics were dyed artificially and flame retardants were applied. Although artificial microfibers are less costly and easier to make in large quantities than natural fibers, they nonetheless pose health hazards to consumers. This health danger is not just experienced by customers; manufacturing workers are also exposed to it. Because of these synthetic fibers, the planet Earth is being poisoned irreversibly. According to reports, the apparel industry is responsible for more than 20% of global industrial water contamination.
With the never-ending debate over renewable energy versus fossil fuels and the damage they are causing to our environment, including unhealthy carbon emissions, ozone depletion, and, ultimately, the impending catastrophic global warming that environmental scientists warn us about, we must decide if we all want this planet to survive our excesses. According to a study, the textile sector contributes more to environmental deterioration than any other industry, accounting for more than 10% of worldwide carbon emissions. That’s a frighteningly large figure. All of these figures are wreaking havoc on the ecology and wreaking havoc on our surroundings.
