Sustainability Development Goal 6 -Clean water and Sanitation
Sustainability Development Goal 14
-Life below water
Sustainability Development Goal 12 -Responsible consumption and production
Circular economy, zero waste and Sustainable development goals has a major impact on this project. Learning about carbon emission made me realise the big effects on environment due to small problems faced in production and consumption in the field of textiles. Sourcing raw materials locally can save massive amount of carbon footprint. Throughout the project I have carefully worked out ways to minimise carbon footprint by sourcing all materials from within Tamil Nadu. From the consumption of yarns, dyes, packaging and souvenirs. This will also support SDG 13 for climate action by reducing carbon footprints. The chosen yarns and dyes cause less or no harm to the environment as they are sustainable and eco-friendly. Some of the process involved in this project provide solutions to other unsustainable practices.
Sustainability Development Goal 15 -Life on land
Life on land completely concentrates on the consumption of sustainable yarns, bringing solutions to land-waste and also implementing zero waste approach at the end of production. Tencel and banana yarns are used in this project, as it is the most sustainable and has easy access in Tamil Nadu. It also throws lights on fruit wastage in Koyambedu market, Tamil Nadu, where the wasted fruits are used as ageing agent in the production of natural dye vats. Packaging, souvenirs and branding has an approach to zero waste production to reduce landfill. Thus no waste goes a waste in production.
