fashion and technology combine for sustainability
100% recycled cotton dress
This month I refer you to several interesting “threads” from the Guardian Sustainable Business Network:
– A new Swedish fabric made of 100% recycled cotton using a process that is highly scalable
– Solar fiber, that harvests solar energy through a photovoltaic fibre woven into fabrics
– And finally, fiber made from captured carbon emissions. Earlier I reported on the idea of using captured carbon emissions as a new source material, and this article shows how the effort is expanding and addressing fibers.
To keep it all clean we can turn to smog-eating laundry detergent, as reported in fastcoexist. It’s a fascinating project now in development with a major detergent maker.
