Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) has organized a two-day online streaming event featuring six premium textile firms in collaboration with the Bureau of Foreign Trade. The six firms are presenting their latest sustainable innovations and displaying Taiwan's competitive advantage in functional and sustainable textiles to the global textile industry.
The two day online streaming event is being held via TTF's Textile Export Promotion Project (TEPP) official Facebook and Youtube from November 11-12, 2020.
According to UN Conference on Trade and Development, considered the second most polluting industry in the world, the fashion industry releases half a million tonne of microfibers every year. This is equivalent of 3 million barrels of oil being dumped into the ocean. The industry uses roughly 20 per cent or about 93 billion cubic meter, of global waste water annually.
Taiwan textile firms have been quick to act to minimize environmental footprints and be more socially responsible. Through innovative research and development, thes firms are developing sustainable fabrics from waste bio-based materials and PET bottles to help lessen the burden on mother earth.
