Made in Green by OEKO-TEX® (By Penfabric)
In 2015, Penfabric became the world’s first integrated textile company undertaking yarn spinning, greige weaving to dyeing and finishing, to be awarded the STeP by OEKO-TEX® certification for Sustainable Textile Production. The certification is awarded by the International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile Ecology (OEKO-TEX) with headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.
By having both the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 and STeP by OEKO-TEX® certifications, Penfabric is then qualified to use the “Made in Green by OEKO-TEX®” label, the first integrated textile company in the world to be accorded this honour. This label carries identification that allows easily traceable information about the company’s product throughout the supply chain. This provides consumers with the confidence that the product is sustainably produced in accordance to the OEKO-TEX® guidelines.
Go GREEN Packaging
We pack items together instead of individual packaging.
In the uniform industry, we are unable to just pack our products in a bag and go. We put serious considerations in our packaging for our clients - packaging materials that disintegrate overtime is not encouraged as often uniforms are kept in storage for a period of time.
An option for GREEN Packaging is always available to our customers. Together, we can reduce our carbon footprints and the negative impact on our planet. Opt for GREEN Packaging during check out, reduce the use of plastics!
Here, we are always looking at how we can make our whole business more sustainable.
