The production of textiles has the largest environmental impact for textiles. The environmental impact can be decreased by setting requirements in public procument aiming at longer lifespan for textiles. Decisions made prior to the formulation of procurement documents may have a large impact on whether the textile can be reused or recycled. There is a web based guide (is Swedsih, under introduction) to show ways to reach longer lifespan for textiles.
