bluefinder for environmentally friendly textile products

Feb '08
Environmental protection in textile manufacturing becomes more and more important. Consumers and companies have begun looking at environmental issues at a deeper level.

The product is no longer the only concern during production, but rather the overall outcome of the entire process including waste water and air emission must be considered. With the bluefinder, manufacturers now have the possibility to consciously select the best components, not only for their products, but also for the people and the environment.

Consumers and NGOs more and more call for environmentally friendly textile products. This also includes an environmentally friendly production. Currently, the textile industry uses about 25 % of the worldwide produced chemicals. Up to 700 liters of fresh water are used for the finishing of 1 kg of textile. For a big retailer this accounts for over 2000 small lakes for the yearly production.

And the more water is used, the more energy is needed which contributes to global warming. At the same time consumer testing organizations continue to find substances in textile products that are harmful to the people or the environment.

Retailers and brand companies have introduced “Restricted Substance Lists” (so-called RSLs) to counteract this situation, though often with little success.

For a product to be truly environmentally friendly, consumer safety as well as all environmental aspects of production must be considered. During production, where decisions on resource usage, processes and operations are made, a practicable tool for eco-efficient manufacture must be provided: the bluesign standard.
