A Study on Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of a Cotton Woven Shirt
Keywords:cotton, woven shrit, shirt, environmental impact, life cycle analysis
The property of textile materials has gained a lot of attention thanks to the resource consumption and waste
material emissions at the moment time. So, it's terribly essential and a core demand to gauge the
environmental result of textiles from a life cycle perspective to develop the property of textiles.
Environmental problems became vital over the previous few years owing to increasing pollution, waste
materials, heating, etc. shoppers have additionally begun to demand inexperienced products. As a result of
these events, additional strategic and systematic approaches square measure necessary for ever-changing
environmental problems. Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) is one of the tools to satisfy this necessity. During this
research, we have a tendency to square measure analyzing the LCA of a ‘Cotton woven Shirt’, and
scientifically evaluating the environmental impacts also as resource utilization to supply, from raw materials
to the disposal of the merchandise at the top of life.
