Textile is a major job creator after agriculture. In fact, textile industry is shifted from developed to developing nations in Asia and Africa due to availability of cheap and skilled labor. However, textile is also the major source of pollution. Many of the rivers have been polluted by the textile effluents. There is a lot of air pollution caused by textile industry. In fact, recently Copenhagen Summit was held and attended by 194 nations. The main focus was how to reduce the carbon emission. India is 4th largest as per as emission of carbon is concerned.
E-Confidence: It is nothing but a production of textile goods with minimum damage to environment. The textile produced should be eco-friendly to consumer causing no health hazards. In near future, consumers will be prepared to pay extra for eco-friendly produced textiles to save the mother earth.
