Intradeco Apparel – March 2010
On March 23rd Intradeco Apparel was awarded one of the 2010 Sustainability All-Stars by Apparel Magazine at Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, we will be profiled in the June 2010 issue of Apparel. We were awarded for being a “world-class vertical supplier of Knit apparel to North America,” and the only vertical resource in Central America spinning raw bales of organic cotton. For over five years we have put effort toward organic products, recycled polyester, the use of biodegradable bags and recycled boxes and its energy efficient initiatives in our buildings and operations.
“We are very proud of our company’s commitment and undivided efforts to be sustainable. Sustainability must be a culture in the company. This has to emanate from the directors, to human resources, manufacturing operations and so on. By getting everyone involved in these goals we are able to develop more sustainable methods in all our company divisions. From the amount of disposable coffee cups used, to using co-energy generation in our dye and finish facility; to efficient lighting, product development and packaging. We are very pleased to be recognized and singled out by some of the most prestigious organizations for our ecological solutions.”
