The international community pays more and more attention to the responsibility of enterprises to the environment and emphasizes that their manufacturing processes. Both of product and service should continue to use overall preventive environmental strategies in order to increase ecological benefits and reduce harm to humans and the environment. We are surprised that apart from the petrochemical industry, the fashion industry turned out to be the most polluting industry in the world. There are two serious sources of pollution in the manufacturing process of glamorous fashion apparel, namely synthetic dyes and fiber dyeing wastewater. How can such pollution be improved? Microbial dyes can be used to replace synthetic dyes, and carbon dioxide gas can be used to replace precious water resources. The sustainable development of the fashion industry can satisfy consumers’ demand for colorful fashion clothing by introducing sustainable environmental protection and green technology.
