FORTEX SUSTAINABILITY

The Fortex spa, textile company with a strong vocation for ecology, decided to produce sustainable for severl years now .

This stems from the many debates about ecology, caused by issues related to the environmental emergency, the waste of natural resources, the increase of energy costs, the global warming, the global overpopulation and the resulting depletion of habitats and the shortages of raw materials, the toxicity of some industrial products, the air and water pollution, the waste disposal.

Embrace the sustainable means for us to show responsibility and attenction to ethics, respect for the environment, to the health and safety of those who buy and wear the packaged tissues. This mean, obviously, take decisions able to lower the environmental impact of their production activities, reduce consumption, ideate and realize product that for the materials used, the manner in which they are produced, their behavior at the end of life, diminish the impact on the environment.

Then it’s have been thought again about product life cycle, new products with eco-design, with an increase percentage of raw materials from recycling, reuse and regeneration.

Innovation and environmental protection are the cornerstones of the new Prato textile production, and of Fortex Spa in particular.
