I know...how can we say we are Eco Friendly when we use Polystyrene???
Since taking over the Business in early 2018 we have been progressively moving toward a more Eco-Friendly business.
To date we have changed our packaging over from Plastic Zip Retail Display Packaging to Re-usable, Recycled Packaging that can be used again and again. When it is time to throw it away - it is fully recyclable! We predict we will have achieved full change over by June 2020.
In addition we have changed our Aus Post packing to Bio Bags which are Biodegradeable and Compostable! We think this is hugely important as all our products are mailed out in Satchels and this goes straight into the bin!
Our New Range of Eco Friendly Fabric is SunProof Olefin which has the following benefits:
Clean manufacturing process
Woven from 100% solution dyed olefin yarn. Sunproof has chosen to use the premium quality of solution Dyed Olefin. Solution dyeing is a clean manufacturing process as the color is added before the yarn is extruded. It is friendly to the environment because no dye bath processes are used, eliminating waste effluents, which may pollute air and water.
Sunproof fabric is 100% recyclable.
Sunproof is Oeko-Tex certified. Oeko-Tex is the world’s leading ecolable for textile. Being Oeko-Tex certified means Ateja Sunproof fabric are free of substances which might be harmful to humans and environment.
Waste Water Reduction
With our technologically advanced process we eliminate the harmful chemical effects of conventional dyeing processes and reduces water usage
