One of our core goal of our E3S Program was to find innovative and creative ways of preventing Waste Generation and Promoting recycling and yes, our cut wastes don’t go to landfills and we take pride in saying that our garment cut waste generated gets recycled and becomes a paper which is used for various products replacing wood pulp made paper. This means, two environmental purposes 1) Prevention of Tree Cutting and 2) Recycling garment cut waste which otherwise would go to landfills.
Labels attached to our products are actually made from Recycled Polyester, Converting Pet bottles and plastics which are effectively ravaging our environment into usable labels is one of the great ways to protect our environment and our well-being.
