  4. 4. CARBON FOOTPRINT A carbon footprint is “the total set of GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product” (UK Carbon Trust 2008). An individual, nation or organization's carbon footprint is measured by undertaking a GHG emissions assessment. Once the size of a carbon footprint is known, a strategy can be devised to reduce it. Carbon offsets, or the mitigation of carbon emissions through the development of alternative projects such as solar or wind energy or reforestation, represent one way of managing a carbon footprint. Source: Wikipidia ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.
  5. 5. ECOLOGICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL FOOTPRINT The ecological footprint is a measure of human demand on the Earth's ecosystems. It compares human demand with planet Earth’s ecological capacity to regenerate. It represents the amount of biologically productive land and sea area needed to regenerate the resources a human population consumes and to absorb and render harmless the corresponding waste. Using this assessment, it is possible to estimate how much of the Earth (or how many planet Earths) it would take to support humanity if everybody lived a given lifestyle. Every year, this number is recalculated - with a three year lag due to the time it takes for the UN to collect and publish all the underlying statistics. Source: Wikipidia ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.

  8. 8. WHAT ARE WE DOING TO OUR WORLD? 85,000,000 plastic bottles used every 3 minutes (National Geographic) 260,000,000 tons of plastic produced per year – only approx 5% gets recycled 2,000 times more energy is needed to make/ship bottled water than tap water ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.

  19. 19. BIODEGRADABLE A process where, a substrate will degrade naturally, with the help of Biological elements such as sun-rays, moisture, microbes and enzymes. Once compost, this substrate will not pollute the soil by leaching toxicology elements as is present in Plastic or Paper products. In fact, biodegradable products will compost and fertilize the soil (organic-fertilizer)! ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.

  21. 21. ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.
  22. 22. WHY ECO-TEXTILES? Organically grown fibers: Have a limited environmental ‘footprint’ (renewable source, no pesticides) and reduces the impact on climate change (lower release of GHG emissions). Better ‘traceability’ (where does it come from?) Reduce the impact of non-renewable petroleum based synthetic materials (polyamide, acrylic, etc.) which creates pollution. International support from: Industry associations and NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) Companies Corporate Social Responsibility and Fair & Ethical Trade initiatives Green consumers group and growing public awareness Media coverage and lifestyle status symbols ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.
  23. 23. WHAT ARE THE SOLUTIONS …? Alternative sources for fibers and materials Greener ways of growing and processing natural fibers such as cotton and ‘green’ products Developing fabrics that consume less energy for washing, drying and ironing Stimulating consumer demand for fair trade and sustainable textile products and materials Putting more effort and organization into the recycling of textiles and clothing ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.
  24. 24. InnovAsians Copyright 2007. All rights reserved WHICH AVAILABLE ECO-TEXTILES TO APPLY? Organic cotton environmentally friendlier - no pesticides, or insecticides during the growing cycle. Hemp The ecological footprint of hemp is smaller than that of most other plants. Hemp plants grow very quickly and densely which makes it difficult for weeds to take hold, eliminating the need for artificial fertilizers. It requires no irrigation as it thrives on the amount of water in the average rainfall, and it is highly pest-resistant. Wool Factory-farmed sheep Then there is the matter of not bleaching the wool to get it white, or dyeing it. ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.
  25. 25. InnovAsians Ltd. Hong Kong. All rights reserved WHICH AVAILABLE ECO-TEXTILES TO APPLY? Soy silk is made from the by-products of the tofu-making process. The liquefied proteins are extruded into fibers which are then spun, and used like any other fibers (woven, knitted, etc.). Bamboo is a highly renewable ‘grass’, it requires less water than cotton. It also has natural antibacterial properties and the fabric "breathes". The resultant cloth is biodegradable. Corn fiber Ingeo is created by extracting the starch and then sugars from corn, and processing them to make a fiber, which can be spun into a yarn or woven into fabric. …Other Eco-textiles include: Recycled Polyester fibers Fortrel EcoSpun™ (made out of recycled plastics), Milk Silk, Algae fibers (SeaCell) etc. ©Copyright InnovAsians Ltd.
