Adidas Uses CO2 Dye Method On Their Shirts To Save A Ton Of Water (Video)

Dying a shirt requires 25 liters of water. And a lot of harmful chemicals. Which is why it's good practice for any clothing manufacturer to look into creating safer methods. The CO2-based DryDye technology that Adidas has started using doesn't require a single drop of H2O.
How is this done? The fabrics and chemical dyes are placed in a large sealed chamber and CO2 is pumped into a pressure of about 74 bar. The tank is heated to 88 degrees fahrenheit at which point the CO2 behaves like a gas and a liquid allowing the colored dyes to permeate the fabrics without the use of excessive chemicals.
The DryDye process uses about half the chemicals as traditional water-based dying methods, and requires about half the energy too. Adidas has already made 50,000 shirts using this safer process this summer.
Is that picture really worth your life? Here's one shocking fact: the death toll for selfies in 2015 is higher than that of shark attacks. It's hard to make sense of the number of people dying because they were trying to take a picture of themselves. In fact, it doesn't make sense at all. Read more
