To ensure Sustainable Life products have a positive impact on the planet, many environmental factors are considered. Initiatives in our partner factories include:
Solar panels are installed on the roof to power lighting on the factory floors.
Factory buildings contain many windows to ensure that natural light is utilised before switching lights on.
Wind turbines are installed on sites help provide back up power for lighting in the factories.
Vacuum packing products to reduce the space needed for transportation and to cut down on carbon footprint.
Encouraging the use of public transport or bicycles for the employees.
Solar heaters are used for water required in the ironing boilers to pre-heat them before using mains power.
Power saving motors and automatic lighting are used to reduce electricity consumption.
"Sustainable Life manufacturers have committed to ensuring that they minimise their environmental impact on the planet"
Cotton and Sustainable Life
Cotton is a staple fibre, it is durable, recyclable, and provides livelihoods for millions. However, with so much research highlighting the amount of water used during the production of cotton products, efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle this water are prioritised.
Lessening water consumption is high on the list for manufactures that work with sustainable life.
Ways in which water conservation is enacted are: on site effluent plants being situated within manufacturing units, water waste is treated and recycled for a continued life. Factories also have on site rain water harvesting capabilities to ensure that raw material usage is minimised. Organically verified fabric is also a key way in which our factories promote reduced water usage. Organic cotton requires much less water in the growing process due to the absence of pesticides. It also means that nearby water sources are not polluted with these same chemicals.
