Great experience from yesterday's 'Teens Out of the Box' competition, with my idea; a coat made from 100% bamboo fiber fabric, with an added feature of two pockets that transform into reusable shopping bags made of the same material!
Did you know that clothes nowadays (made from polyester, nylon, acrylic, and other man-made fabric) contain 8,000 SYNTHETIC CHEMICALS and PLASTIC? This can trigger cancer and respiratory diseases!
Indonesia also produces over 3.2 MILLION TONNES of PLASTIC WASTE every year, according to the Jakarta Post.
People often forget to bring reusable shopping bags when they're shopping, which leads them to use plastic bags again! This is one of the largest plastic waste donators and must be stopped!
Because of this fatal problem, I ask every one of you to be aware of the importance of natural fiber fabric, especially bamboo fiber fabric, to our health and our environment, and wear natural fiber fabric clothes!
If Indonesian people begin to grow their awareness of how important natural fiber fabric, especially bamboo fiber fabric, is to our health and environment, they will start making demands. And the demands will push the fashion industry to produce and supply more natural fiber fabric, including bamboo fiber fabric, and possibly press down the price of the garment 40-50% from my financial report total cost: IDR 900,000.
This way, you can reduce the amount of chemicals and plastic in the world, and keep your & your family's health and our environment healthy.
