Adoption of DryDye* for reducing the amount of water used
Mizuno became an official sponsor of the Osaka Marathon and we deliver T-shirts employing DryDye technology, which is characterized by completely waterless dyeing, and these shirts were given to all the marathon participants from FY2014.
It normally takes about 25 litters of water to dye a single T-shirt. The recent adoption of DryDye for the official Osaka Marathon T-shirts facilitated T-shirt production without using approximately four million liters of water in five competitions from FY2014 until FY2018.
*A dyeing method which uses supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) instead of water.
