Environmental & Sustainability Of VAYYU™ Products.
Here at VAYYU™, we take the health of our planet very seriously, are we perfect? No, are we getting there? Yes. Little by little, we aim to be a 100% carbon neutral and 100% eco-friendly in all our products by 2020. Help us to achieve this by purchasing our 100% wind power produced t-shirt ranges. Together, we will achieve the perfect, eco-friendly, sustainable green world, we all deserve to live in.
Vayyu™ is more than just a brand, it's a standard, it's the incarnation of years of working in the fashion industry alongside the high-street retailers and many well-known brands.
Over the years, the fashion sector has been in need of drastic ethical and eco transformation from its current state.
Damaging industrial practices that make our clothes and products are continuing to be played out in many countries today. This is unacceptable and can be reduced or even stopped by the buying choices we make as a consumer. To destroy the very planet which has given us so much is just unfathomable; the oceans, the forests and the people should work in harmony.
Vayyu™ brings a vision of a new world, a world of product traceability, eco-sourcing and the sustainability of resources.
We create clothing that is durable, ethically sourced and eco-friendly.
On the design front, we construct and imprint our deepest revelations into the brand thus explaining the very essence of life through our clothing.
To achieve zero liquid effluent discharge, our factory has installed salt & water recycling plants. The multi-effect evaporator & crystallizer is available for the recovery and re-use of salt and water. They also have primary, secondary and tertiary effluent treatment plant with a reverse osmosis system for recycling water. Combined, they are capable of treating about 3000kgs and 6,000,000 litres of water per day.
Our apparel is produced under the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and certified by control union. The certification encompasses the farming, production and distribution, ensuring full traceability of every product.
Under the organic standard, farmers and agricultural workers are protected by stringent social criteria, total traceability across the entire supply chain, and also by the ban on the use of poisonous chemicals that can severely damage the health of farmers and their families. These standards also free poor farmers from third world debt to chemical companies on the 'pesticide treadmill'. To help tackle the social injustice often seen in manufacturing, commonly known as sweatshop labour, one of our organic product goes further, making transparent the manufacturing supply chain through an independent audit by the Fair Wear Foundation, which promotes fair labour conditions in the clothing industry.
Our all products are certified by the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard, Class I. The Oeko-Tex Standard is a guarantee of the safety of textiles and dyestuffs to human health and to the environment. It also means we take more care in adopting environmentally friendly production methods throughout the manufacturing process.
The processing of the dye effluent takes place in a controlled closed-loop purification system that uses treatment ponds, sand filtration and reversed osmosis to convert the wastewater into clean water and solar pan treatment.
VAYYU™ use's wind-powered or ethically accredited factories to produce its apparel. Making a big difference in the garments carbon footprint and also the lives of the people making them. We treat nature and all our workers with dignity and respect.
It can take more than 20,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton, equivalent to a single T-shirt and a pair of jeans. That's why we chose to work in a region that receives up to 95% of its water from the monsoon rain. This was an important consideration for us, as the monsoon rain reduces the need for large-scale irrigation projects normally associated with conventional cotton farming, which often deprive local villages of scarce water resources by draining lakes and rivers.
