How Textiles Affect Our Environment: 3 Facts to Know About

 What we wear affects the environment.


Textile industry consumes a large quantity of water and chemicals during fabric coloring process. Approximately 20% of the colorants enter the environment through sewage from the wastewater treatment plants. The presence of such compounds in the industrial water streams may create serious environmental problems due to toxicity, such as living organism mutation.   


The naturally occurring textiles, such as cotton or wool, are eco-friendly materials, because they require considerably less energy and water per kilogram to produce. However, farming requires large areas of land and has many eco-toxicity impacts, such as making land infertile. 


Synthetic fibers such as nylon are entirely artificially synthesized, typically from simple petrochemical starting materials, which requires more energy and water to produce. Research at the University of California found that on average, synthetic fabrics release large amount of microfibers each wash. They are particularly dangerous because they have the potential to poison the food chain. 



As a company, we must be aware on how we effect the environment we live in. VDN uses natural fibers to produce timeless fashion. We are trying to take care of Mother Nature as she trying to take care of us.
