Since 2017, Friends Garments has switched over from conventional 20W tube-light to next generation LED tube-lights 18W in both Head Office & Factory premises. Also, they recycle the steam that is used in their Drying Tumbler machines for storing it in a heat room, which is used as a multipurpose garment drying room. Last but not least, all water that is used in washing processes is afterwards directed in state of the art Effluent Treatment Plant through which water is treated to be safe to be re-used in certain washing processes again.
