Closing the loop: Green chemistry paving way for circular fashionThe textile industry, much like other sectors, bears significant responsibility for the increasing ecological concerns. With the rise in fast fashion coupled with a linear business model, the amount of environmental waste generated exceeds the average. According to data provided by the Ellen Mac Arthur Foundation, about 92 million tonnes of garments end up in landfills every year globally. If the trend continues, it is expected to reach 134 million tonnes a year by the end of the decade. These numbers reflect the perils posed by the conventional fashion model to both Mother Earth and its inhabitants. Above all, it echoes the need to nurture circular fashion to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs) by 2030 as proposed by the United Nations.
