Garment makers are proactively investing in alternatives to traditional cotton, including a more
drought-tolerant variety. Other alternative fibers include recycled polyester made from plastic
bottles, fiber grown from bacteria, and self-repairing adhesive that will make garments last longer.
Alternative fibers also help reduce emissions, giving manufacturing a cleaner carbon footprint –
something that’s increasingly important to consumers – without impacting costs.
