Sustainability Notes from: http://threaddocumentary.com/
In 2009, the world used 3 trillion gallons of FRESH WATER to produce 60 billion kgs of fabric; it takes 700 gallons of FRESH WATER to make 1 cotton T-shirt.

20% of industrial fresh WATER POLLUTION comes from textile treatment and dyeing.

The loss, in dollars of materials, due to failure of companies and individuals in the US to RECYCLE, has been estimated at $30 billion per year.

1 trillion kilowatt hours are used every year by the global textile industry = 10% of total CARBON IMPACT.

TEXTILE WASTE occupies nearly 5% of all landfill space; The ave US citizen throws away 68 ins of clothing/yr — 1 million tons of textiles are thrown out every year
