We need to find natural dyes that stay on the fabric without having an environmental impact. I’ve tried dyeing my clothing with vegetable and fruit scraps and while the colors were great at first, they do tend to wash out over time. Most dyes are fine for example; Prussian blue ( which was the first synthetic dye and is still used in jeans) is non-toxic and is even used for treatment for heavy metal poisoning in humans. It’s the binders and the fact that the leftovers are dumped which is the problem
We conclude that blue jeans, the world’s single most popular garment, are an indicator of the widespread burden of anthropogenic pollution by adding significantly to the environmental accumulation of microfibers from temperate to Arctic regions. Jeans, or dungarees where I’m from, don’t feel right until 10-12 years after a wash. Then they’re perfect for another dozen wears.
