MagnaColours announces it is now certified to ZDHC Confidence Level 3 (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals)—the highest ZDHC certification level currently available.
ZDHC Confidence Level 3 means that over 55 MagnaPrint and MagnaTrans Oeko-Tex Eco-Passport certified screen printing inks and additives also meet ZDHC’s MRSL (Manufacturing Restricted Substances List) and are verified as being responsibly manufactured.
ZDHC aims to remove harmful chemicals from production and the supply chain to protect workers, consumers, and the environment. Through its efforts, MagnaColours reduces its chemical footprint and environmental impact, as well as its customers’ impact.
MagnaColours has also been working on expanding the range of inks and additives certified as Oeko-Tex Eco-Passport and GOTS Approved Inputs (Global Organic Textile Standard), to be used in the production of GOTS certified garments.
Managing director, Helen Parry, says, “Working to be certified as ZDHC level 3 was a key achievement in our commitment to driving the printing industry to be more environmentally friendly and reducing its impact on the environment.”
