TAIPEI, Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- To assist Taiwan's industries further their efforts on sustainability, with the support of the Bureau of Foreign Trade, the Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) has organized a two-day online streaming event by selected six premium textile firms to present their latest sustainable innovations and display Taiwan's competitive advantage in functional and sustainable textiles to the global textile industry.
According to UN Conference on Trade and Development, fashion industry is considered the second most polluting industry in the world. Each year, half a million tons of microfiber, equivalent of 3 million barrels of oil, is being dumped into the ocean. Roughly 20% of global waste water, about 93 billion cubic meter, is used by the fashion industry annually. As extreme weather becomes more common, consumers and brands start to realize that actions are needed for a better future.
As the provider of 70% of the world's functional textiles, Taiwan textile firms are quick to act to minimize environmental footprints and be more socially responsible. Through innovative research and development, sustainable fabrics are developed from waste bio-based materials and PET bottles to help lessen the burden on mother earth.
The two day online streaming event will be held via TTF's Textile Export Promotion Project (TEPP) official
