Measure the eco-impact of your fabrics and garments

Eco-Metrics is a simple on-line calculator that enables retailers, brands and textile manufacturers to measure and compare the environmental impacts of different textile products and processes.

Textile Eco-Metrics has been developed by Colour Connections in order to make objective assessments of products and processes possible by everyone involved in textiles – the web-based interface and simple presentation of results makes it very accessible.

It's core concept is that there are four key environmental impacts associated with textiles

  • Water
  • Energy
  • Pollution
  • Use of non-renewable resources

......and it considers the whole production process too – not just the most marketable bit!

Check out our video explanation of how it works HERE
