Creating fabrics for the future, that change your way of living. Response fabrics is a responsible choice aiming at creating environmentally sourced, cellulosic fibers of botanic origin that define a new standard of sustainability and natural comfort for you. Biodegradable textiles are natural textiles that easily break down, like cotton, silk, wool, cashmere and hemp.
Biotextiles have become a popular solution in environmental engineering. They may be manufactured from synthetic or biodegradable materials. The main functions of geotextiles are: separation, filtration, drainage, sealing, anti-erosion protection, and improving plant vegetation conditions. The synthetic ones are produced mainly from fossil fuels. One of the ways to reduce the consumption of energy from non-renewable sources and to limit environmental pollution is to replace petrochemical materials with natural products. The change needs to happen now. The impact of what we were today goes way beyond clogged landfills. The “fast fashion” industry contributes to this leading to high levels of water and air pollution.
Besides the increasing awareness of recycling, reuse and recovery of materials, there is an increasing need to limit the exploitation of resources and the production of waste. Biodegradable materials and fabrics are in increasingly high demand. Response fabrics is a platform that provides you with these high engineered eco friendly materials. Today more than ever textile innovation must operate at different levels, with a particular focus on improving production processes to reduce water and energy consumption, waste production and the use and/or dispersion of toxic substances. Biodegradable fabrics are those fabrics that are considered to decompose easily via the natural process. Why not, when we can, use these fabrics for a better tomorrow. Clothes can be composted as long as 99% of the entire garment is considered to be biodegradable — these fibres have the ability to break down quickly in nature without leaving any toxins behind.Composting is conditional to factors like clothing dyes being AZO-free, the trims, buttons and threads must be biodegradable or removed entirely before placing the garment for compost In order for clothes to degrade naturally, they must be placed in an oxygen rich atmosphere and items like wet kitchen waste must be added to encourage the process. 95% of clothes can be reused or repurposed and composting should be your last resort owing to its complex processes.We are well aware of the fact that a ton of clothing is being discarded every year, an estimated 92 million tonnes to be specific. And most of it will not biodegrade in a landfill, especially synthetic materials like polyester or nylon that could potentially also leak chemicals into the earth which would further exacerbate the problem. This is where biodegradable materials come to the rescue. Fabrics like organic cotton, linen, hemp, lyocell, peace silk and bamboo are among the few that are completely biodegradable. Response fabrics, being a trusted company since 2004, is pledging today that we will help maintain environmental balance by integrating it into nature’s cycle. Replace your every purchase with kinder options. Biodegradable fabrics are extremely significant and prove to be of great importance when it comes to reducing waste and helping the environment. With the increased use and manufacturing of bioplastics, we can expect a greener and a more sustainable future for our planet. Get in touch with us to know more about our biodegradable fabrics.
