The company has developed ECO WASH which is more sustainable as it consumes less water and cause minimum harm to the environment. Eco wash is a set of processes, which was finalized with the introduction of ICELITE – washing with dry ice . The company already uses ozone process for aging of pieces without water. Until now, it was done with chemicals and wet processes . The laser is also one of the processes in the EcoWash method .
The ice lite processes consists an ice blast with tiny particles that are pumped in order to give the jeans an abrasive finish. The company also calculated some indicators during the development of these techniques and GLOBAL WARMING was one of those . As per the estimate of the company reached to this conclusion that if this technique will be used for 100 years , the potential of global warming reduces significantly over by over 50% in relation to garment industry. By using the Eco Wash Method instead of the traditional method , there will be minimal emissions to the air , water and soil . In Nutshell , this method satisfies the purpose of SUSTAINIBILITY to the certain extent.
