You may not know that it takes 2,700 litres of water to make one t-shirt - enough for one person to drink for 900 days.
1 cotton t-shirt = 2700 litres of water = enough water for 900 days
Now, a technology developed at the University of Waterloo, with help from Communitech, is making apparel production more sustainable by reducing the amount of water needed from 2700 litres to less than 100 litres.
Join us for a demonstration of this transformational technology and see how clothing manufacturing can take a step towards a more sustainable future.
PS we'll be placing 2700 litres of bottled water next to a t-shirt to give you a visual comparison of water needed to make a t-shirt!
