In this journal, our authors have covered sustainability in the fashion industry from various perspectives. Dr. R. Chattopadhyay recommends “The textile industry and all those involved with textiles must make efforts to make meaningful contributions to sustainable development by reducing energy and water wastage, developing energy and water efficient and cost-effective technologies and using alternative energy.”

Dr. Arindam Basu advises “Not to throw away or discard textiles which have alternative uses, may be recycled, may become components of any other product. Efforts should be made not to allow discarded textiles to go landfills or to the incinerators. Many times, value-added products may be produced out of discarded materials. The purpose is to keep resources in use for a longer duration.”

Subhadip Dutta has rightly said, “Sustainability is no longer an option but a necessity.”
