Drink it wear it: Sustainable coffee fabric
Author(s): Dr. Neerja Gupta
What if we could make new textiles from your trash? Imagine wearing a dress which is made using the leftover coffee grounds from your morning coffee (Fig 1.)? This future may be closer than you think. The textile industry has been implementing new technologies and developing new fibers which are both innovative and better for the industry from a social and environment sustainable point of view for some time now. Which should come as no surprise, considering the fashion industry is considered to be one of the most polluting industries in the world. Textile innovation is the direct link to the next step in ensuring the entire industry becomes more sustainable.
