Sustainable textiles and their importance for the environmental care
Textile industry started on XXI century and it has suffered some major changes since then, biology, microelectronics and nanotechnology has made it possible for manufacturers to incorporate new process with natural fibers in order to get sustainable textiles that are very important to take care of the environment.
These sustainable textiles being considered now for multiple uses and not only for clothing, as it makes an important contribution to decrease global warming, because of the biodegradability they have, as natural fibers can biodegrade in months.
“New times have new demands and being complete aware of the importance of environmental care is vital to be able to conserve our world as we know it” was the opinion of Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, in regards to this topic.
Consumers are also more conscious about the importance of caring for environment and are starting to look for garments made of sustainable textiles, as they are comfortable, and look very similar to any other textile, the only negative side they find is the high prices they might reach at the market due to the newest technologies being used to create textiles with natural or regenerated fibers.
Textile products produce enough sources of work for more than 40 million workers around the world, so textile producers are working to get the new technologies and machinery that will help them create sustainable materials by offering competitive prices and taking care of the environment at the same time.
“It is very important to protect the environment from all possible sides, it is very exciting to see how sustainable items are getting stronger, that means awareness of the value of making changes today to take care of our planet”, added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.
