Hera Sweaters Limited, a LEED Gold certified sweater factory in Bangladesh, is committed to sustainable production process. We strongly believe in the principles of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” and conservation of the environment. The world now consumes about 80 billion new pieces of clothing every year. This is 400% more than the amount we consumed just two decades ago. As new clothing comes into our lives, we also discard old clothes at a shocking pace, actually on an average, every person on the planet throws 14 kilograms of textiles into waste every year. However, such wastes are harmful for the environment. To save our planet, we must commit ourselves to sustainable and environment-conserving products and production processes. Our commitment to protect the environment is manifested by several initiatives, such as: water recycle and reuse resulting in zero discharge, heat recovery to save energy, and production of electricity through solar panels. We launched our “Sustainable Sweater Design Contest” in January 2021. Our aim is to acknowledge the talent of emerging designers and encourage them on their way to higher sustainability and responsibility. We hope they will be able to showcase their talent and explore the fashion world through this platform.
