Reduced Textile Waste
We can also work to reduce the amount of textile waste due to odor and excessive washing. Without washing and bacterial growth, the material lasts longer.
In fact, when manufacturers want to test clothes for wear and tear, they simply use washing machines, which says something about the wear and tear every wash means to a garment. So, your clothes will last longer, and you don’t need to buy new ones to the same extent.Also, products do not need to be prematurely discarded due to odor. This prolongs the lifetime of a garment and reduces the use of energy and water.If we used our clothes for just nine months longer before discarding them, we would reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 16%, water usage by about 20% and waste by 8%. And why stop at nine months, if the clothes stay fresh and look new?
