WHAT DETOX® IS

Detox campaign was launched in 2011 by Greenpeace with the purpose of the elimination of 11 toxic substances from the production of the Fashion industry.

The first and main TOPIC is the health of drinking water. Dyes, use of heavy metals and other substances affected the potability of water in the world and that’s why Greenpeace initiated the program to raise awareness and involve the DETOX FASHION WORLD towards sustainable production, ecological and above all non-dangerous-habit towards environment.

Large international groups such as Mango have already joined and launched a public awareness and production to almost zero impact. The intent of DETOX LEADER is to build a Culture of production far from the use of hazardous substances towards health and environment, through communication and awareness of the whole Fashion chain.

In this perspective, ZIP GFD was the first company in ZIPPERS’ production worldwide to undersign the DETOX commitment last September 22, 2014, along with other companies in the textile as: Berbrand srl, Besani Srl, ItalDenim Spa, Miroglio Spa, Tessitura Attilio Imperiali Spa.

Our culture is based on the idea that the focus for the environment improve the product. From this view, since the ’90s, we have developed pioneering products and processes in the defense of the environment. Our Detox commitment is a further step towards a new style of dress sewn on a human scale.

Since the undersubscription of Commitment, ZIP GFD has informed its suppliers about the campaign and sent a letter requesting acknowledgment of the harmful elements that may be involved in the process.
The aim of such a communication was to start up a new sense of awareness of the environmental issue, also requesting a formal commitment from the suppliers as they could pay attention to provide raw materials adequate to the new standards.

Simultaneously, ZIP GFD has made a first part of the analysis for the detection of the percentages of presence of the elements included in the list by Greenpeace as:
