Trama

This book is part of a five-volume set that explores sustainability in textile industry practices globally. Case studies are provided that cover the theoretical and practical implications of sustainable textile issues, including environmental footprints of textile manufacturing, consumer behavior, eco-design in clothing and apparels, supply chain sustainability, the chemistry of textile manufacturing, waste management and textile economics. The set will be of interest to researchers, engineers, industrialists, R&D managers and students working in textile chemistry, economics, materials science, and sustainable consumption and production.  

This volume focuses on sustainability aspects of consumerism and fashion, emphasizing the environmental issues that stem from textile care and disposal, and how many of these practices detrimentally impact the environment. Also addressed is the role of consumer knowledge and behavior associated with the clothing industry that may exacerbate these issues, and what can be done to better inform consumers about more sustainable options available to them. The case studies presented cover environmental and social sustainability in the clothing industry, and sustainable development in luxury fashion networks.
