    Spandex is a man made polyurethane fabric known for its elastic qualities.  Spandex is made up of a blend of the synthetic material and natural fibers of cotton, silk, linen, or wool, and can be made in an eco-friendly manner if desired.  In 2009, a San Diego company Genomatica developed a sustainable method of making spandex by utilizing sugar into BDO, a typle of plastic that can be made into spandex fabric.  So it ultimately depends on the creators to generate an eco-friendly product.
