This June, at DenimsandjeansVietnam, Crescent Bahuman will be showcasing “Our Ecosystem“, a documentary detailing their 25 year long quest in creating, and preserving a Green Ecosystem . It is a unique story, which depicts the remarkable transformation of marshland into South East Asia’s first vertically integrated Denim Facility. The story emphasizes the importance of circularity and explores how man, nature, and industry can indeed coexist.
The journey in Vietnam will explore 3 core strengths of CBL:
Our Love for Nature
“This is no ordinary love story. For 25 years, CBL has been at the forefront of sustainable technologies and practices. Being Green Screen certified and currently implementing the ZDHC program, CBL is steaming forward with its sustainability vision. Apart from various sustainable practices in the garmenting facilities, the Company has decided to attack the root of the product” – Crescent Bahuman
