The global green textile market is gradually expanding
In recent years, green environmental protection has become a development trend in the world. According to industry insiders, in the textile industry, the market for green and environmentally friendly textiles is gradually expanding.
According to reports, at the Texworld Textile Fair in Paris, Organic Exchange Business Development Manager Sandra Castañeda said that environmental protection has become the focus of people from all walks of life.
Organic Exchange is a non-profit organization with a membership system, with members from all industries, ranging from farm to retail. Sandra Castaneda continued, the industry has become more and more concerned about environmental issues.
Sandra Castañeda said investors, consumers, media and government officials are constantly putting pressure on retailers to push them to be more environmentally friendly. Compared with 10 years ago, environmental protection issues have not received widespread attention, but the industry cannot talk about environmental protection. Now is the ideal time to sit down and talk.
According to Sandra Castañeda, the demand for organic cotton is increasing day by day, with a 33% increase from 2007 to 2008 and an estimated 25% increase from 2008 to 2009. However, traditional cotton suppliers believe that the larger increase is due to the smaller base.
Demand for sustainable cotton has also increased, from 180 million euros in 2001 to 2.5 billion euros in 2008, involving 1,500 brands and retailers from around the world.
According to Sandra Castañeda, organic cotton is not limited to making T-shirts. Many designers design fashion with organic cotton and incorporate more innovative elements. Many large retailers such as C&A, Marks & Spencer, Tesco, H&M, Wal-Mart and Galeries Lafayette also sell organic cotton garments.
Organic cotton T-shirts, organic cotton fashion... What kind of clothing is there in the future, Xiaobian does not know, but from the perspective of development trends, it is inevitable that green clothing will become the mainstream of future development.
