Dystar Launches Textile Industry Supply Chain Tools
DyStar’s Sustainable Textile Service offers four supply chain development programs to brands, retailers and their industry partners:
1. Restricted Substance List Development
2. Textile Mill Efficiency Improvement
3. Chemical Management Improvement
4. Environmental Improvement
The four programs are built on DyStar’s existing Econfidence commitment, an eco-label the company uses to highlight its green products.
Greenpeace’s 2011 “Dirty Laundry” campaign – which highlighted the use and discharge of hazardous chemicals in the clothing manufacturing industry – was a catalyst for developing the Sustainable Textile Service Programs, Dystar says.
In the campaign, Greenpeace named and shamed a number of clothing brands associated with importing materials from a Chinese conglomerate that Greenpeace said is polluting rivers.
As a result of the campaign, sportswear giants Adidas, Puma and Nike all committed to having zero discharge of hazardous chemicals throughout their respective supply chains by 2020.
