Step 2.

Reduce Cotton Waste

step1Only 20% of the original cotton mass is used in the final product Therefore it is very important to find uses for what is considered waste, such as

1) After ginning (separation of cotton lint & seed) much of the cotton seed can be used to make cotton seed oil and food for cattle

2) During the spinning process. The shorter cotton fibres are separated and used to
make lower quality textiles

3) All leftovers from the cutting/dyeing stage are used for rope or second quality clothes production
