At the beginning of the year, Global Impex USA welcomed our sustainability consultant, Dr. Anupama Pasricha. Dr. Pasricha was brought in to assist in helping us achieve a more eco-friendly future for not only the company but the textile industry as a whole. As sustainability has been our top priority, she has allowed us to excel in incorporating it into every aspect of the company as we continue to grow.

For our products, we use water-based sustainable inks for all printing. This ink is not only more eco-friendly but it creates a longer lasting and sharper image. 90% of the material we use is 100% cotton as well as our canvas range has GOT certified organic cotton. In the future we would like to introduce more cotton materials and natural Jute/burlap fabrics. Global Impex’s natural products, like cotton, are here to stay and we are continuing to work to find more sustainable ways in all areas of operation.
Another way that Global Impex practices creating a more eco-friendly and sustainable culture is through the setup and design of the business. Our interns participate in a remote internship, therefore, saving many a daily commute five times a week. This can reduce the amount of carbon released as well as the carbon footprint. Sustainability has always been our top priority and this will continue as we continue to grow.
Sustainability in Textiles is to creating the value to the entire supply chain process in both backward and forward integration & work on the zero-carbon foot print approach. This is like to develop the Eco-System which work on the model by doing recycling of the waste and convert it into a reusable format for the society in a sustainable manner.
Most commonly used Sustainable Fabrics:
Organic Cotton. Organic cotton refers to the cotton that has been grown naturally without the use of synthetic agricultural agents like fertilizers, pesticides, or transgenic technologies.

How can we make textiles sustainable?
Usually, the most sustainable fabrics employ a closed-loop or circular system, recycling waste and putting it back into production. Moreover, the regenerative, organic and recycled versions have a lower impact than their conventional counterparts.
“Circularity and sustainability offer a promising pathway for the global textile and apparel industry. “The concept of ‘reuse, recycle and reduce’ can take us towards the sustainable future in the years to come”.
Sustainable textile developments have come a long way in recent years, and it is hoped that the use of non-biodegradable and petroleum-based materials will soon become a thing of the past, allowing the textile sector to reduce its harmful effects on the environment.
