DYK, our ??? jeggings are made by CGM Industrial using recycled water?
CGM’s water treatment plant is located in Lesotho. During the denim jegging washing process, the wastewater is treated to make it reusable in the recycling process as follows.
Wastewater from the factory goes to a tank where the heavy particles are separated from the water (blue in colour).
The water goes to another tank where air is passed through to separate any other particles from the water.
Cotton and fibre are then extracted and separated from the water.
Bacteria are cultured in the water to eat the waste. Once complete, the bacteria are killed.
The water is clarified and filtered. Thereafter, clear water is passed to another tank.
After bubbles are removed, the clear water is softened. The water is now ready for reuse in the jegging manufacturing.
