Textile industries need to focus on reducing carbon footprints

May '09
The term 'Carbon Footprint' has become a topic of hot discussion all over the world. It can be described as the extent of damage caused to the environment due to processing activities.

Activities which have carbon footprint produce large amount of greenhouse gases, causing a disastrous effect on the environment.

Textile industry is chemically intensive with more than 2000 varieties of chemicals used for various applications. These effluents do not decompose quickly, and generate gases like methane which result in global warming.

During the process of wet treatment, huge quantity of fossil fuels are consumed, which have carbon content and react with oxygen to form carbon-dioxide. This results in acidification, fossil fuel depletion and ultimately translates into global warming.

This will result in floods in low coastal areas, unpredictable and extreme weather changes with storms, drought, and sudden wild fires. The ecosystem will be disturbed, and may put some species to extinction.

As Mahatma Gandhi said, “One must care about the world, which one will not see”, requires actions to be taken to curtail the perils of carbon footprints, impending upon the future.

Consumers must be educated so as to make the right choice in their lifestyle to reduce carbon foot print.
