Are environmentally friendly non-woven fabrics really environmentally friendly?
Nonwovens, also known as nonwovens, are fabrics that do not need to be woven, but spun short fibers or filaments for directional or random support, forming a fibrous network structure, which is then mechanically, thermally bonded, or chemically strengthened, etc. method made.
It is a new generation of environmentally friendly materials, with the characteristics of waterproof, breathable, flexible, non-flammable, non-toxic and non-irritating, and rich in color. When burning, it is non-toxic, tasteless, no residual substances, and does not pollute the environment. Therefore, environmental protection comes from this. The chemical structure of polypropylene is not strong, and the molecular chain can be easily broken, so it can degrade effectively and enter the next environmental cycle in a non-toxic form.
As an environmentally friendly product, non-woven fabrics are mainly used in non-woven handbags, because, as we all know, before and now, most of the shopping handbags are mainly plastic bags, and plastic bags are not easy to degrade. Buried in the soil for a long time will not degrade. The non-woven tote bag only needs up to three months in outdoor soil. The important thing is that the non-woven tote bag can be recycled six to seven times, which greatly reduces the consumption of shopping bags, so it is an environmentally friendly product.
