Green is the New Black
Sustainability: “Sustainable fashion” has gradually evolved as a new lifestyle. Not only the outdoor products and sports brands have been vigorously promoted, but also many popular fashion brands have been supporting them. From the design of textiles, materials, production process and packaging, “green fashion” has been implemented, showing the interaction between fashion and environmental protection and ecological friendliness.
Eco-friendly Chemical / Material Choices: In recent years, China has been guiding the printing industry to shift to non-polluting and low-energy consumption, and it is extremely urgent to promote “green printing” from various aspects of equipment, technology and materials. In addition to the general properties required for printing auxiliaries and dyes, textile chemicals must also meet certain specific quality indicators such as safety and biodegradability. Environmental protection and green will become the mainstream of textile chemicals development in the future.
