Americans Struggle To Pay Their Water Bills I
According to the Water Online site, millions of Americans struggle to pay their water bills.
The fashion industry currently uses enough water to quench the thirst of 110 million people for an entire year.
The fashion industry is the second most water-intensive industry in the world, consuming around 79 billion cubic meters of water per year.
Around 20% of industrial water pollution globally comes from the treatment and dyeing of textiles.
It takes 2,700 liters of water to make the average cotton T-shirt and that’s enough drinking water for one person for 900 days.
It is estimated that dyeing of textiles consumes 2.4 trillion gallons of water every year. The ratio of water to textile production is 200 tons to 1 ton in most fabric manufacturing facilities.
5.9 trillion liters – The amount of water used each year for fabric dyeing alone. (World Resources Institute).
YES, WE CAN !
The idea is to digitize the dyeing process by applying the color on the fabric face-side. The backside will be free from colorant (No skin contact with hazardous content of the dyes and chemicals). On the one hand, the dye consumption will be around half and the water usage will be around 30% out of the conventional process. On the other hand, the fabric content of the dye to be washed and drained is 50% less than the conventional process, meaning half hazardous chemicals in the effluent
