SaltyCo Develops Freshwater-free Textiles

SaltyCo Develops Freshwater-free Textiles
UK startup SaltyCo has developed a freshwater-free textile by processing salt-tolerant plants irrigated with seawater.

Textiles are a major consumer of the world's precious freshwater resources. Only 3% of all water in the world is freshwater, and only 1% of that is drinkable.

By using salt-tolerant plants, SaltyCo has been able to extract fibres which are then turned into vegan, fair-trade, organic, and carbon-neutral.
