At the heart of the Green Policy are our Formaldehyde Free processes for all productions and the total water recycling system, which uses the effluent from our dying process, treats, filters, retains and reuses it. The retaining ponds on the facility serve as a habitat for fish and bird life, bringing beauty and serenity to the factory campus. In addition, the lack of toxic chemicals being used and discharged into the environment keeps the nearby area clean and unspoiled for community use.
Other aspects of the Green Policy include energy saving protocols, the mulberry fields and sericulture around the campus while all products are designed to participate in the “Carbon Footprint” program, reducing our impact to global warming in every way possible.
Satin Textiles is the producer of the special Royal Napkins designed by Her Majesty the Queen of Sweden to raise funds for the World Scout Foundation. These elegantly embroidered serviettes contribute to the foundation by donating 57% of the selling price, helping to provide a better scouting program for youth the world over.
Being close to nature is part of the design philosophy at Satin Textiles, so it is only natural that we actively participate in forest conservation programs. To do this, we founded and become the primary sponsor of the Thai Tropical Forest Foundation, which supports the activities of the Seub Nakasathien Foundation through finance and participation. The Seub Nakasathien Foundation is one of the most influential forest conservation groups in Thailand through its frequent awareness and wildlife management campaigns. The foundation’s programs and research are some of the most valuable resources for pro-environment groups in Thailand. More information can be found at their website: www.seub.or.th
