Many of us don’t put much thought into the materials that our clothes are made from beyond those generic descriptions, like, ‘soft’, ‘stretchy’, or ‘delicate’. When looking at labels it doesn’t take a magnifying glass to notice that one fabriccomes up more than most: polyester. Considering its prevalence it is important to know exactly what you’ve got rubbing against your skin.


When did polyester first arrive on the scene?

Polyester fabric hasn’t been around forever. Our grandparents were clothed in natural materials such as wool, linen and cotton and in fact, by the end of World World II, the latter accounted for over 80% of fibre consumed.

With chemical advances in the 1940s man-made fibres were introduced, and so began a gradual shift away from cotton. Nowadays, polyester dominates the clothing industry, with annual production exceeding 22.67 billion tonnes worldwide.

The term ‘polyester’ describes a category of polymers produced by mixing ethylene glycol (derived from petroleum) and terephthalic acid.

Putting aside the chemical jargon, polyester is a common plastic with a wide application that includes and extends beyond the fashion industry.

It ranks behind polyethylene (i.e. packaging and water bottles) and polypropylene (i.e. ropes, stationary and Australian bank notes) as the most commonly used plastic.

The majority of polyesters are not biodegradable meaning that the polyester fabric shirt you bought last season will not decompose for 20 years at best and 200 years at worst , depending on conditions.

What’s more, polyester is, in part, derived from petroleum and the oil manufacturing industry is the world’s largest pollutant.

Ever noticed how polyester fabrics are stain resistant? That’s because it takes a special kind of dye to successfully colour polyester. These dyes, known as disperse dyes, are insoluble in water and, like polyester, are made up of a complex molecular structure that does not readily decompose.

Waste water from textile factories containing leftover dye is difficult to treat and, as such, enters the environment where its toxicity Best 4U Womens Summer Sandals Comfortable Faux Silk Lace Net Basic Pumps Pointed toe 12CM High Heels Rubber Sole Ankle Chain Wedding Shoes Black RuwBi

4. Ask the right questions

Now, if I had a Dollar for every Family that I met in more than 15 years of Intensive Care nursing in three different countries who had no idea what questions they needed to ask in order to not only understand the situation, but also to understand the dynamics in Intensive Care that implicitly or explicitly impact on the care, treatment and also on the positioning of the prognosis and diagnosis of your critically ill loved one by the Intensive Care, I would be a millionaire…

Without you and your Family asking the right questions you certainly will remain powerless, without control and without influence…

By you asking the right questions you will immediately set yourself apart from 99% of Families of critically ill Patients in Intensive Care who have no control, no power and no influence! By you asking the right questions you will instantly make a positive impact in the dynamics with the Intensive Care team, you will set yourself apart and you will immediately belong to that 1% bracket of Families of critically ill Patients in Intensive Care who have PEACE OF MIND , control, power and influence!

The reality is that if you and your Family don’t ask the right questions, the Intensive Care team will have an easy time to drive their agenda and they will have an easy time to keep you at “arm’s length” so to speak…
