Our Friendly and eco- friendly policies
Please find some our Eco Friendly accreditation's below:
Cotton/ Natural Fabric Printing :
Our cotton fabrics are printed in one of the most Eco-friendly way possible, using Digital Pigment inks. Our fabric printing requires no water at all in the printing process, and uses around 95% less energy than traditional screen printing. Virtually zero ink waste is created in the process due to accurate discharging of inks onto the fabric. There are no soapy residues or liquid discharges from the production.
The inks used passed the following standards:
- Inditex Clear to Wear
Additionally they do not intentionally contain any chemicals concerned within the following directives :
- European Directive “Restriction of the Use of Certain Hazardous Substances” 2011/65/EU (“RoHS Directive”),
- REACH Directive - European Chemical Agency’s (ECHA) Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern for Authorisation.
Polyester Fabric Printing :
The inks used passed the following accredited standards:
- Oeketex 100 - Product Class II - suitable for direct human skin contact for ages of 3+
- Oeketex Eco Passport
- UL ECOLOGO
- GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certified,
- and use Eco Mark-Certified ink cartridges that are odorless, meeting stringent environmental standards.
All our fabric is sourced from REACH-compliant mills across the world who maintain a level of quality in terms of child labor, ecological impact and responsibility.
Some fabrics we print are Oeke-Tex approved also.
Some fabrics supplied are made from GOTS-organic approved yarns.
Company Policies :
Fashion Formula has recently installed a 'Zero to waste' policy, with a focus on minimizing our environmental impact. This includes sending excess fabric and cutoffs to local charities, schools and educational institutes to be reused. Our paper and ink wastes are currently recycled by professional waste management companies to avoid being sent to landfill. All our machines are fitted with energy saving cut off switches resulting in reduced energy consumption when idle.
As a company, we are committed to paying the living wage for staff and being a fair, open and responsible employer. We believe strongly in equality of pay and opportunity between gender, race, religion and otherwise. We invest in the education and training for young artists and students in the arts of textile printing and fabric production.
