The Effects of Textile Factories
What are the impacts?
According to one of the residents named Giyam who lived in the village of Plesan, Sukoharjo. She said that her back was adversely affected by skin irritation after washing the muddy feet at times. Due to this, it is thought that river water has been contaminated by the waste. In addition to causing skin diseases, waste of PT Rum at Gupit river also causes unpleasant smells. This is complained by Ngepos citizen in Wonogiri. They say their water is polluted and it smells like Petai, which is probably caused by the RUM factory waste in the Bengawan river in Solo. It proven by the results of tests made by Chemical engineering laboratory, the faculty of engineering at Muhammadiyah Surakarta university.

Many ways are done to process, utilize, and reduce dye waste. One way to reduce chemical liquid waste in the form of textile dyes is to use materials from nature that can be obtained from plant extracts from roots, stems, leaves, flowers, and fruits. The use of natural dyes for textiles and making motifs on textiles is called Eco Print. According to Erico (2019), Eco Print is a printing technique that uses natural dyes, which does not involve machines or chemical liquids. This is certainly very effective for reducing water pollution due to waste from chemical dyes because based on Musripah (2019) natural dyes have many advantages, including the color produced is more natural, and of course very friendly to the environment, and the level of danger of natural dyes is much safer than chemical / synthetic dyes.
