Your pants (TGW) - Marks & Spencer (M&S), the U.K.’s largest clothier, has announced that it is selling carbon neutral underwear and bras.
The undergarments are produced in a carbon neutral factory in Thulhiriya, Thailand.
The factory uses evaporative cooling, carefully designed windows, turf roofs, and renewable energy to be green. The plant uses 40% less energy than a normal plant and 90% of its energy comes from hydropower and the other 10% from onsite solar panels.
The factory cost about 25% more than a normal factory to build, but the extra costs are expected to be offset by energy savings within five years
