We see people all over the world trying to improve sustainability; but few are in the position to make a lasting impact. Those of us in the garment screen-printing industry are at an advantage. The exceptional performance of the latest water-based inks means there is now no need for solvent-based printing systems, immediately reducing the risk of harmful chemicals to our health and the environment.
By aiming to eliminate these chemicals from the garment-printing industry, GNA® will change the world forever.
One harmful ingredient in particular – PVC – GNA® has zero tolerance for, because:
- during manufacture and disposal PVC emits poisonous toxins into the air,
- during use PVC can leach phthalates,
- when it is disposed of by land fill or incineration, it emits dioxins and heavy metals into the environment, and
- when burnt, PVC decomposes to form Hydrogen Chloride and toxic Dioxins.
As ink manufacturers, printers and brands we have the opportunity to make a real difference. Those who choose to embrace GNA® will be recognized for operating at the forefront of legislation and chemical compliance.
As a universal certificate of compliance and sustainability, GNA® meets the customer demand to significantly reduce the amount of hazardous and environmentally damaging chemicals from the garment-printing industry.
Screen-printers will be able to increase their offering to brands and retailers, while brands and retailers improve how they exhibit their green credentials.
