Primark expands chemicals testing pilot

Written by Brett Mathews

LONDON - Primark has announced the results of a pilot programme it carried out with six factories from its supply chain in China in which it looked chemicals used in the washing and dyeing process and also conducted waste water testing. The pilot, carried out as part of Primark's Greenpeace 'detox' commitments, will now be expanded to other suppliers in China as well as further afield to India and Bangladesh in order to train more factories on good chemical management. Primark has also announced that it has produced three case studies showing how certain chemicals can be substituted with safer alternatives, including one in which it sourced a PFC-free alternative in the form of Evo Protect DWA which is made by global dyes and chemicals business, Dystar.
