Reverse Climate Change with Natural Dyes

We at Natural Dye House play a very important role in reversing climate change. Most industries and companies are having a future date to achieve zero carbon, but we can safely say with the adoption of Naturally dyed products, we can be a Carbon negative industry from the start itself.

Below is an overview of how this can be achieved.

Chemical Colour Systems

  • Currently, Chemical colours are made in large Industrial factories using high amounts of conventional power. This leads to a very high carbon footprint.

  • Chemical colour manufacturing and dyeing use large amounts of freshwater that cannot have a second use of water towards agriculture or irrigation.

  • The usage of chemical colours creates environmental degradation of water and land contributing to the severity of climate change.

  • If we do not prevent the climate crisis from happening then we need to face the humanitarian crisis that will follow.

Natural Dyes

  • The beauty of natural dyes is it requires no power to produce. The air, water, earth and the sun produce it for us.

  • Most of the natural dyes are harvested from trees, shrubs and plants. With the increase in the adoption of naturally dyed products, we will need to grow more of the dye yielding trees and plants. So this will increase green cover thereby absorbing more carbon back from the atmosphere and having a carbon negative impact.

  • In the usage of natural dyes, there is no impact on the land and water. Here we have an important ability to reuse the extremely important natural resource of fresh water. The water after dyeing can go through a simple treatment process and can be reused for agriculture or used to create forest cover, regenerate degraded forest lands. This will increase green cover thereby helping to fix more carbon back in the trees.

  • We all know reducing the impact on the environment will help to avert a major climate crisis and avoid a humanitarian crisis.
