Abstract: Textile industries are the second most contributing aspect that leads to the global pollution of the world. The pollution that is caused by the textiles can be broken down into the following parameters: Water Pollution – Textile industry is a voracious consumer of water. Various processes of the textile/cloth manufacturing require water which includes scouring, dyeing, sizing, bleaching, printing and other finishing processes which are known to the humankind. Air Pollution – Textiles move through the production processes. Harmful gasses like nitrous oxides, Sulphur, etc. is emitted in the air through chimneys by bleaching and printing processes. Solid Land Pollution – Fibers, hemp, yarns, and other production wastes are also contributing factors to solid Pollution. Extra powdered colors and color holders, scrap metal, oil fabrics, and wastewater slime can sully the dirt and groundwater sources if not legitimately discarded or discharged untreated. As an effort to counter this pollution to an extent possible for an NGO named “One with Earth” from Singapore came up with a concept of Swap-ping already produced clothes to help the reduction of new garments manufacturing. Swapaholic stands for swapping clothes amongst citizens to encounter the problem faced by nature and help in reducing waste as much as possible. The following coming features will describe the Swapaholic internal process.
