At Vegotex International, we aim to minimise our impact on the environment through effective water management, in order to ensure that fresh water remains available for everyone. Following amfori standards, we manage and treat the quantity and quality of our wastewater released into the environment.
By working closely together with suppliers and expert organisations when sourcing more sustainable raw materials, we’re able to reduce our carbon, water and waste footprint, limit chemical and pesticide usage, prevent deforestation and protect fresh water and biodiversity. Organic cotton, our primary focus, is grown using methods and materials that have a positive impact on the environment. Vegotex collaborates with and consults third-party certification organisations such as the Better Cotton Initiative (BCI), who verify that organic producers meet strict federal regulations, using methods and materials allowed in organic production.

Doing our part for the environment and knowing our customers’ desires, Vegotex is proud to have this capability. Do you strive to produce clothing under Detox regulation? Don’t hesitate to contact our sales department, and we’ll help you achieve your goals.
