PP non woven tote bag（2）
Now that we are on this topic, it is time to discuss the making of non-woven bags or other fashion items. This theme must be emphasized, as manufacturing is a key criterion in determining whether a material is sustainable.
What makes nonwovens more sustainable than other types of plastics:
During the nonwoven's life cycle, almost no energy or carbon dioxide is consumed. Furthermore, during the production of polypropylene, bisphenol A is not present. It's a chemical that has worried people and health experts for quite some time. Due to its lower density, polypropylene also requires less resin (up to 1/3) than other plastics to create any application. In this way, the production of polypropylene and its non-woven follow-on varieties reduces the amount of non-renewable resources required in the manufacturing process.
Another reason nonwovens are more sustainable than other plastic varieties is the waste management part of their life cycle. Since polypropylene and nonwovens are reusable, recyclable and less toxic than other materials, the burden of waste management is reduced. As an intermediate conclusion, non-woven bags and other items are not perfect from an ecological point of view. Its manufacturing process includes the use of renewable and non-renewable resources. When it comes to waste management, the world needs to put more emphasis on recycling, even everyday non-woven groceries and things like worn-out grocery shopping bags. However, there is a reason why nonwovens are the most popular alternative for eco-friendly fashion.
Sustainable Applications of Nonwovens:
By now, you probably know that one of the most widespread applications of non-woven polypropylene is in shopping bags, fashion tote bags, wallets, sports backpacks, and more. However, before we go on to explain why and how to wear more non-woven clothing and accessories, we must draw attention to one key factor. According to experts and statistics, polypropylene non-woven fabrics will gain huge market shares in many industries.
Non-woven polypropylene was, and still is, one of the key materials in the manufacture of face masks, doctor's protective gear, and other types of equipment and accessories that are used not only in medicine but also in agriculture. The personal care industry is a driver and beneficiary of the recent popularity of nonwovens.
As noted by experts, high product demand in the personal care and hygiene industry for the manufacture of baby, women, and adult hygiene products is expected to drive industry growth. Rising awareness of personal hygiene among consumers has led to increased demand for sanitary napkins, diapers, incontinence products, and wet and dry wipes, thereby propelling the market. Rising demand for protective clothing is also expected to positively impact the market development. These products provide high standards of protection, barrier quality, and protection against the penetration of dust particles and microorganisms.
However, the ethical fashion industry has always been one step ahead when it comes to the use and promotion of non-woven bags and other recyclable materials. So, here are some of the most critical fashion items for using nonwovens and riding sustainable fashion trends!
1. Non-woven reusable large grocery shopping bags;
2. Ladies zipper office wallet;
3. Non-woven neutral drawstring/buckle bag;
4. Beach bags for the whole family;
5. Practical bags, such as clothing and shoe bags, travel bags, diaper bags, laundry bags, etc.
6. Clothing and non-woven fabrics have found their rightful place in the fashion industry and become the preferred materials for the following industries: sportswear; cold weather/warm-keeping clothing and equipment;
7. Military uniforms; sunglasses, jewelry, accessories, etc.
Polypropylene non-woven fabric is a lightweight fabric with excellent chemical and physical properties, abrasion resistance, moisture resistance and abrasion resistance. So it's no wonder that you'll find polypropylene fabrics part of carpets, rugs, diaper topsheets, and many other items. In sports apparel, however, polyester is more common than non-woven polypropylene. This is because non-woven fabrics cannot be washed thoroughly in hot water and retain odors. But beyond that, non-woven polypropylene is here to stay, from medical protective coveralls to some of the trendiest eco-friendly jewelry.
