DyStar, the leading global supplier of dyes, chemicals and services to the textile and clothing industry is pleased to announce that it is now a member of Organic Exchange, the Texas-based organisation promoting co-operation on sustainability along the whole supply chain.
Dr John Easton, Global Ecology Solutions Manager for DyStar Textile Services explains why DyStar has chosen to join Organic Exchange. “There are two main reasons,” says Easton, “firstly, the new owners wanted to emphasise their continued commitment to promoting sustainable practices in the textile supply chain and the role that DyStar can play; secondly, to support and engage with Organic Exchange as it widens its scope of activities to take in not just organic cotton but all sustainable textiles.”
“We are an environment-sensitive company. Our econfidence program helps retailers, brands and fabric mills understand the requirements of sustainable textile standards, be it organic cotton or other ecotextile fibres,” adds Steve Barron, CEO of DyStar. “And, through the same program, we help our customers comply with both legal and independent standards.”
With the years of experience in Ecology Solutions, DyStar has the expert knowledge needed to help customers understand the requirements of sustainable textiles. It can help them lower resource consumption and reduce pollution loads through appropriate dye selection for Right First Time and Best Available Technology for wet processing.
Mr David Bennell, Executive Director of Organic Exchange, welcomed DyStar to the OE community, stating that the membership enrolment of a globally-respected company such as DyStar is a strong indication that the new mission and objectives announced recently by OE are on the right track.
