One Of India’s Leading Textile Factories Has Created A Sustainable Community

In Banswara, India, one man's vision has transformed a small village in the jungle into a town that has the most sustainable factory fashion textile production.

According to the South China Morning Post, It all started with a small factory of 200 workers making sustainable fabrics. Today, the factory employs over 11,000 people, and environmental protection is at the heart of everything the company does.

Textile production has always been a heavy water polluting industry, but Banswara Syntex has built its own water treatment plant.

The plant is so efficient that the water it releases is perfectly safe to drink.

But what about all the energy needs?

The solution was to build a clean thermal power plant that doesn't just supply the factory but also the entire local community.

And the factory owners also tackled waste recycling and composting for the entire community, not just the factory.

Employees and local residents now actively separate all their waste and run large scale composting centers.

It's incredible to see how even large companies can thrive when they put their employees and local communities at the center of what they do to create a thriving business and prosperous society. 

Banswara Syntex provides jobs, education, and housing to a loyal workforce, and that has enabled them to sell their products to over 50 countries worldwide.
