The blu energy of Orta

People are more and more concerned about damage to the Eco-system and how it has already dramatically changed their lifestyle. At Orta Blu, we constantly work to improve the way we operate to reduce our impact on the environment. Although our factories and offices are already run at the highest standards of sustainability, we keep analyzing the system to continue improving. Orta Blu is part of BCI (Better Cotton Initiative) that promotes growing cotton in a more sustainable way.
