Detoxing at the root of fashion
Change is most difficult but also most effective when it happens at the root of a problem. This is why we are now working with Italy’s Prato region to Detox the companies that supply renowned fashion brands, including Gucci, Prada and Armani.
As of today, 20 companies in the Prato textile district, the oldest in Italy, have joined the Greenpeace Detox campaign. They have already made great strides to remove hazardous chemicals from their factories and they are eager to make more.
Believes in Sustainability
Along with a group of companies of the CPF, we set out on this path by defining a Charter of Values fir Sustainability which is articulated on several points:
- Traceability in the supply chain: from the procurement of raw materials to the last phase of working inside or outside the company
- Meeting standards and international conventions on human rights
- Respect and dignity of life of every living thing
- Protection of the environment and biodiversity: limiting the environmental impact of production with use and prudent management of chemical substances
It 's inevitable that the production process becomes fully sustainable in relation to consumers, customers, employees and the entire community, and because of the path we have undertaken, will become reality quickly
Our forest grows up!
With TREEDOM Industria Italiana Filati renews and supports a project in Africa.
In a region of Senegal were planted fruit trees directly from the farmers who will benefit from the fruit. Planting trees means putting the roots, living in the rhythm of nature and help the planet Earth.
This is our forest!
"All things and actions exist in Nature are perfect"
