Re: Dyeing cons

I understand your point, but what is the alternative?  Also this water is being returned to the water cycle for evaporation-rain-drink.


Best regards

The topic has become focused on chemical contamination. But what about wasting a precious resource? That is water.


Perfectly good drinking water is being used to dye, at a local level. Commercially millions of gallons are used for dyeing. It’s such a serious issue, that scientists are developing / have developed “waterless” dyes.


Because something has worked for 50 or 100 years, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to work much longer.
