Garmon, a pioneer of the revolution. Garmon is the advanced chemical supplier for the apparel world that provides worldwide fashion players with advanced solutions to give wearers exactly what they ask for: garments enhanced by modern and beautiful fashion treatments that are safe for them and for the planet. Garmon is the only company contractually granted a 2-year license on the GreenScreen® trademark in apparel.
Green is the new black: fashion welcomes GreenScreen® products. Environmental issues will be the driving topic affecting business in the next 10 years, challenging the way companies manufacture, use and distribute chemicals. Fashion brands and laundries can indeed no longer just promise future change: an answers must be given now. “GreenScreen® for Safer Chemicals” is what ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals) Joint Map (2013) recommends as the best tool to assess the safety of chemicals.
While other certification protocols are property of specific associations or companies, GreenScreen® is revolutionary in the sense that it is open and freely accessible. GreenScreen® moves away from any transience and temporariness and is instead a symbol of solid commitment to the environment. It allows brands that choose this certification path to be counted as leading design and ethical icons. It shows the world that responsible developments and production with zero aesthetical tradeoffs are now possible and cool. Garmon’s commitment to responsibility dates back to the very beginning of its operations. Garmon is the first specialty chemical supplier to proudly introduce GreenScreen® in the apparel industry. Some of the chemicals that are now GreenScreen® certified are the very same products that have been on the market long before, proving how embedded in the company’s DNA environmental values are.
