SUSTAINABLE LINEN: WHO WOULDN’T BENEFIT?
2,000 employees do it all together
Not only the factory and the products are handled neatly, the employees are also well taken care of. ‘Everyone in the factory is working on his or her task. The organization is Fairtrade certified, but you can tell it’s from the heart and not to obtain that piece of paper. They give a lot of attention to training and improving processes. I noticed how well the employees are cared for, and they are all as enthusiastic as the next person. They are almost exclusively women, all over the age of 18 and living no more than 8 km from the factory. There is also a lunch facility at the factory for employees.’
Time or the next sustainable step!
Nicolet saw how education, development and process improvement made the cotton chain greener and how the Chetna Project improved the lives of employees and their families. But she was also confronted with everything that is missing in India. ‘Despite that fact, the people there are so kind and so positive. They kept asking us: “Can we supply more, what else can we do?” It is up to us to ensure that we participate in new initiatives and purchase more. A win-win situation: for them, for us and or our customers. Because who wouldn’t benefit from sustainable linen?
