Why azo free dyes?
Azo dyes contain toxic and potentially carcinogenic by-products. (The European Commission has already passed directive 76/769EEC, which bans the usage of certain azo dyes for use in textile or leather products which come come in "direct or prolonged" contact with the skin or mouth.) Azo free dyes are also much easier on the environment. Azo dyes, on the otherhand, resist biodegradation under aerobic conditions, so they are difficult to remove from an ecosystem.
