Something About Cotton You Should Know

"The Amount of Water Used for Washing Soap off Fabric."

For cleaning soap off fabric with small tank : 5-10 rolls of fabric (one roll = 20 Kg.)

For cleaning soap off fabric with big tank : 24-28 rolls of fabric (one roll = 20 Kg.)

Duration Time : 10 mins each time.

Water usage 500 Kg. or about 6,000 Litres (12 Litres/Kg.)

Fabric 500,000 yards are consumed electricity about 150,000 Baht/month


"Cotton"

Cotton is an important raw material particularly in the textile industry. Where it is utilized for production of cotton thread and fabric. Cotton has been with us since ancient times. It may be found in many finished products such as clothing, shoes, household items etc.

Natural cotton fibers have qualities which are different from synthetic fibers. Clothes made from pure cotton fibers are much better than those made of synthetic fibers. They are comfortable and cool when worn in hot humid weather yet warm in a cold climate. In the event of fire, cotton garments are less flammable then synthetic garments. With all these good qualities, natural cotton will always remain popular. In fact, so far, no one has been able to make a synthetic fiber that can match the pure all natural beauty of cotton.




"About the Unbleached and Undyed Cotton"

Thank you for choosing unbleached and undyed cotton that is better for you and the environment. Unbleached-undyed cotton conserves resources, prevents pollution and is environmentally safe.

Advantages to the environment!





"How Good is The Unbleached Cotton?"

Unbleached-undyed cotton processed without bleaching with chlorine and dyes. Bleaching process with chlorine created highly toxic substance called “Dioxins” which are extraordinarily toxic to all species tested. Dioxins are the most toxic manufactured chemical ever tested on laboratory animals. Acutely lethal doses measured in micrograms per kilogram per kilogram animal weight, in the parts per billion ranges. More worrisome than the high acute toxicity are the more insidious long-term effects of exposure to sub-lethal doses of dioxin. Daily doses 1,000 times below the lethal doses, the part per trillion ranges, cause profound delayed effects in mammals, such as cancer, damage to the immune system, and reproductive failure. Dioxins cannot easily destroyed by simple separation, and proper destruction of dioxins is extremely expensive. Dioxins can be broken down under certain conditions, in particular when exposed to intensive sunlight. They cannot be broken down once absorbed by soil or dust or animal tissues. The use of unbleached cotton prevents production and emission of these toxic dioxins.


"How Undyed Cotton Protects the Environment?"

There are many different types of dyes, but they can divide into two basic groups, synthetic and natural. For the most past, synthetic dyes derived from petroleum products, specifically coal tar, and a waste product from coal distillation. “Natural” dyes extracted from plant and animal sources. It sounds like these dyes should be completely non-toxic, heavy metal-based chemicals. By skipping the dyeing stage entirely, pollution prevents and thousands of gallons of water and many kilowatt/hours of electricity conserved.





"How Unbleached-Undyed Cotton Reduces Formaldehyde?"

Formaldehyde resin use as a finish to keep fabrics wrinkle-free. Often no-iron bed linens, polyester/cotton blend fabrics, and permanent press clothing treated with formaldehyde resin. 100% cotton textiles that are labeled “easy-care” or “no-iron” are also treated with this finish.

Formaldehyde applied so that it actually becomes part of the fabric, and formaldehyde gas continuously given off by treated material. While washing permanent press items reduces the amount of gas that emitted, the fabric does continue to give off vapors indefinitely. Insomnia, tiredness, headaches, respiratory, irritations, and many other problems can occur because with formaldehyde.

The use of unbleached-undyed-formaldehyde treated cotton will prevent those people involved in cotton fabric making from those mentioned symptoms and prevents the contamination of formaldehyde in environment. Choosing unbleached-undyed cotton prevents and reduces pollutants in both water and air and can save 40,000 liters of water and 140 kilowatt/hour of electricity.
