SUSTAINABILITY
IN THE SCREEN
PRINTING WORLD?
IT'S
COMPLICATED.
WHEN IT COMES TO SUSTAINABILITY CLAIMS
IN THE FASHION INDUSTRY, IT PAYS TO LOOK
BEHIND THE CURTAIN.
By Steve Kahane
GLOBAL APPAREL is a trillion dollar industry that keeps
us all clothed, but the process casts a large footprint on our
environment. The average person today buys 60 percent
more clothing than they did 20 years ago, and they throw
out more as a result. Less than one percent of used clothing today is recycled or reused. According to the World
Bank, the fashion industry uses more than 93 billion
cubic meters of water. That's enough to meet the needs of
five hundred million people. An estimated 20 percent of
wastewater worldwide comes from fabric treatments. The
fashion industry contributes 10 percent of annual global
carbon emissions; that's more than all international flights
and maritime shipping combined. At its current rate, the
fashion industry's greenhouse gas emissions are expected
to increase by more than 50 percent in the next 10 years.
