Dying shirts is a common practice in the clothing industry, particularly every two years. Reportedly, the amount of water needed to dye these shirts would be practically as many as the Mediterranean sea which would mean a lot of water wasted.
However, Adidas may have a new solution to preserve our precious H2O. This comes in their Adidas DryDye T-Shirts, a process wherein dyes are used through carbon dioxide compression. Such a practice is needed by clothing companies to put color back into their clothes.
To give you an idea, the average shirt requires about 25 liters of water to dye, but the new Adidas DryDye tees will reduce water use to 0 liters. It will also reduce the need for chemicals by 50 percent.
The said project has already resulted in 50,000 Adidas DryDye tees, which has saved 1.2 million liters of water.
