The textile and apparel industry is one of the largest industrial sectors in the world, both in terms of production and labor. This sector contributes to both the clothing of the people and the living spaces.
The environmental problems such as global climatic changes, harmful residues, toxic chemicals, ozone hole, acid rain, water and air pollution, which are more felt in environmental conditions today, are caused by the textile industry along with other industries. During the production, there is high water consumption in this sector and some chemicals are used and various wastes are caused. Solid or liquid wastes adversely affect the environment. Some chemicals discharged show toxic effects in the nature and create a danger to the decrease of oxygen in the water and both to aquatic organisms and humans.
For all these reasons, production of environmentally friendly textiles has become more important and demand for environmentally friendly textile products has increased rapidly. In addition, Eco-Label system or environmental labeling system is envisaged as a solution in order to prevent air and water pollution on this road.

For this purpose, the Eco-Label system has been implemented for almost twenty years and covers a large number of product groups.
