The textile industry uses a tremendous amount of resources. For example, it takes 2,700 litres of water to make enough cotton for a single t-shirt. That’s about the same amount of water that one person drinks in two and a half years. This is one reason why clothing made from recycled and alternative materials has become more popular in recent years. At Springwise, we have covered innovations that include shoes made from recycled gum and sneakers made from recycled bottles and fungus. Now Australian company Nanollose is developing a new green option with a system that uses waste biomass from the coconut processing industry, to create a plant-free fibre. The new fibre has a much smaller environmental footprint than commonly-used textiles like cotton.
