The environmental disputes involved with consumption of textiles to examine broadly on product level in Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) studies. The social sustainability hot spots have also investigated on the Cotton T-shirt manufacturing cycle. In a word, the purpose of this case study is to address the key social and environmental issues in the lifecycle of a white cotton t-shirt which is produced in Bangladesh and selling to EU.
