adidas Introduces T-Shirts Made Without Water

adidas Introduces T-Shirts Made Without Water

A typical t-shirt takes 25 liters of water to dye, but adidas has introduced 'DryDye'; a new process that uses no water, 50% less energy, and 50% fewer chemicals.

adidas has teamed up with the Yeh Group to use the revolutionary DryDye technology to put color into its t-shirts without using any water. It normally takes 25 liters of water to dye one t-shirt but this innovative technique uses a pressurized form of carbon dioxide instead. DryDye also uses 50% less energy and 50% fewer chemicals.
