The data shows that the total amount of clothing sold worldwide in 2017 has doubled that of 2003. This figure not only shows that the real economy is developing rapidly, but also reflects that the fast fashion industry is rising at an unprecedented speed. At the same time, hundreds of billions of yuan worth of clothes are eliminated every year, and the cumulative inventory of used clothes reaches as much as 100 million tons.
Under such circumstances, the application of environment-friendly fabrics has become a hot topic in the apparel industry. At Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Spring Edition, a large number of environmentally friendly fabrics will soon meet with you.
Recycled fabrics are in vogue
At present, many fabric manufacturers are working hard on regeneration. For example, Nantong Dongyi High-tech Fiber Technology Co., Ltd. responded positively to the call of the state, in line with the concept of protecting the ecological environment, has made gratifying achievements in the research and development of environment-friendly regenerated fabrics. The company uses recycled yarn to weave fabrics, Dupont Sorona, Dupont Sustans and other fabric products. Its performance is almost the same as traditional fabrics, showing a very wide application space.
Changshu Zhongzhou Textile Sales Co., Ltd. has also followed the trend of green environmental protection and introduced knitted recycled environmental protection fabric products. It is known that this product has also undergone a series of international certification, which meets the European Oeko-Tex Standard 100 ecological environmental protection certification and the international GRS recycling standard. It is highly recognized in the world and has been applied in knitted products now.
Closed-loop mode of environmental protection textile is beginning to appear
At present, the recycling of textile materials has formed a closed-loop industrial chain, which means that these obsolete clothing will be fully utilized in the future. Behind the advantages of environmental protection fabrics, a large number of technical breakthroughs have been made by fabric accessories enterprises.
Wuxi Hengnuo Textile Technology Co., Ltd. will recycle recycled yarns with recycling value, such as recycled polyester and nylon, to produce new fabric products, realizing the recycling of materials used by enterprises themselves. In order to optimize the performance of recycled materials, the R&D team of the enterprise has carried out a technical game. They use color masterbatch addition technology to add color in the spinning process, thus reducing the waste water discharge in the dyeing process, and greatly improving the color fastness of the fabric. It is understood that Wuxi Hengnuo will try to recycle and reuse textile materials at various levels such as degradable polyester and bio-based products in the future.
Changzhou Wujin Dayuan Yarn Dyed Fabric Co., Ltd. will mainly display cotton, polyester nylon, linen, recycled polyester, viscose, tencel, Modal and other products. 80% of the products are used for men's wear, 15% for women's wear and 5% for children's wear.

Accessories with green concept
In addition to fabrics, at Intertextile Spring Fabric Accessories Fair, many accessories products with green concept will also meet with you. These enterprises carry the banner of environmental protection, and their efforts also make the whole industry chain of green clothing shape.
We take Lanzing Brand of Lenzing Ag as an example, the viscose fiber under this brand is Lanzing's milestone product on the road of sustainable development. The negative impact of this eco-friendly viscose on the environment has reached the lowest level in the industry. It can be said that it has made a sample for the whole industry. At present, Lenzing fiber has been certified by the European Union for environmental protection.
