Modern Manufacturing Process Followed In Patriot Eco Apparel Ltd
Modern Manufacturing Process of apparel industry has many negative environmental and social impacts that are complex and occur at different stages of the apparel life cycle. The development of fast fashion has amplified the impacts due to the increased volume of apparel produced and sold at low prices.
Patriot Eco Apparel has a long manufacturing process and complicated production chain consisting of many phases including resource production and extraction, fiber and yarn manufacturing, textile manufacturing, apparel assembly, packaging, transportation and distribution, consumer use, recycling, and ultimate disposal.
The environmental impacts of Patriot Eco Apparel Ltd are varied across the phases of manufacturing process, difficult to assess for individual garments during , and are subject to the type of raw material used, dyeing and laundering.
The major environmental impacts for Patriot Eco Apparel Ltd are associated with the production and use of apparel throughout its life cycle include wastewater emissions from dyeing, finishing, and washing processes, increase in pollution, solid waste production, and significant depletion of resources from consumption of water, fossil fuels, and raw materials.
Here at our new eco plant energy is used for laundering, transportation, operations of machines for various processes, the production of primary materials, especially man-made fibers such as polyester (a petroleum-based product), and yarn manufacturing of natural fibers such as cotton.
Chemicals are also released in wastewater from processes such as pre-treatments, dyeing, finishing, and laundry for Patriot Eco Apparel. These chemicals are disruptive to both the environment and aquatic-based life. Solid waste is produced during natural fiber yarn, textile, and apparel manufacturing and disposal of apparel products at the end of their life.
There are significant issues with clothing waste as the majority of clothing and textile wastes ends up in landfills as opposed to being recycled or reused. However, for us, environmental impacts cannot be addressed once the product is introduced into the market and more attention should be focused on eco-environmentally friendly product design.
Patriot Eco Apparel believes improvements in product design can be made by improving the flow of life cycle information and eco-design guidelines, integrating environmental considerations into the manufacturing processes, and involving relevant stakeholders to review the approach.
Education on the need for eco-friendly products and the use of case studies and examples would help to strengthen the design and manufacture of environmentally sustainable products. European Commission-Health and Consumers, Scientific Committees Opinion (1999).
