Over the span of 51 years, Bangladesh has come a long way, especially in the RMG sector. But with time and industrial development, the country suffered a considerable amount of environmental damage due to landfills, dyes and chemicals being dumped into the rivers and toxins being released into the air from RMG factories, draining the country of its resources and polluting its land, air and water. However, CYCLO believes that this industry can do better and in a cleaner way, one that ensures a sustainable future for the country by reducing its environmental footprint.
Within the last decade, CYCLO Recycled Fibers has been reimagining the way global RMG waste is processed. Deeply committed to making headway for a sustainable approach to managing RMG waste in Bangladesh, CYCLO has tailored the national flag of Bangladesh, measuring 10 feet by 6 feet, out of pure recycled yarn, in effort to leave behind an impactful footprint on the path to a sustainable Bangladesh.
The flag aims to honour the memory of the martyrs and leave behind an impactful footprint on the path to a sustainable Bangladesh as the country celebrates its 51st Victory Day on December 16. This flag is on display at the CYCLO factory in Mymensingh, Bhaluka, for the workers’ assembly that took place to commemorate the brave martyrs on Victory Day this year.
Greeting people on this historic occasion, Mustafain Munir, Director, CYCLO Recycled Fibers, said, “CYCLO takes pride in being able to process RMG waste in a sustainable approach while ensuring profitability and full-fledged production process. Our journey in the last 10 years has been solely committed to supporting Bangladesh’s march toward sustainable growth in the RMG sector. With the flag made out of recycled yarn, we aim to recall the sacrifices made by our brave martyrs and cement the faith of sustainability in the minds of industry leaders while CYCLO leads the path towards a healthier, greener Bangladesh.”
As a part of CYCLO’s commitment to streamlining and inspiring sustainability in the RMG industry of Bangladesh, the national flag made out of recycled yarn was sent out to an esteemed guest list of RMG industry leaders.
