The brand has embarked on a journey to increase its dependency on solar power to 60%. Spykar’s production facility currently boasts of zero fossil fuel usage and relies on solar power for 30% of their energy requirement.
The brand has been conscious of its production techniques and the impact it generates on the environment.100% of Spykar denims are made with 90% recycled water. A special treatment plant has been installed which treats water in the facility which is later reused in the production process. It also ensures no contaminated water is released into water bodies.

Our processes have been designed with a vision to minimize climatic impact and lead the way for sustainable development.

Measures have also been taken by the government and Spykar to ensure the land for the facility was not used for agriculture, an arid plot was hence assigned.
