It provides gainful employment to millions of people besides contributing substantially to the country’s foreign trade. The economic significance of cotton and the cotton industry in India is so great that Mahatma Gandhi based his freedom movement on cotton economics.
At the present time consumers are increasingly inclined to use organic textile products manufactured with maximum care taken to protect the environment. The object of the present study is to compare the life cycle and impact of production processes of recycled cotton with those of conventional cotton, in order to demonstrate the enormous advantages for the environment of using recycled cotton in the manufacture of all kinds of textile garments, since this raw material is one of the most sought after textiles for fabric manufacture.
