Abstract:

Today consumers are becoming more aware of the need to protect the environment, and companies use these terms to promote their goods or services with eco-labels. Environmentally friendly (also eco-friendly, nature friendly, and green) are terms used to refer to goods and services, laws, guidelines and policies claiming to inflict minimal or no harm on the environment. Clothing is an integral part of our lives and green or environmental concerns have started to draw more and more attention in the textile and clothing sector . This paper analysed how green the textile and clothing industry is with respect to the product lifecycle, from raw material through the design, production and logistics up to disposal in order to point out important points and parameters for greening the industry.
