Japan’s MUJI to Open Eco-Friendly Dye Plant

Japanese retailer MUJI, known for their minimalist designs and recycled, logo-less household and consumer goods, have announced the development of a new, eco-friendly dyeing plant in Cambodia.

In a press release, the company reported that the 2,000 square meter plant will employ over 300 local workers by 2015. The plant’s design and construction are part of a global initiative sponsored by the UN Development Program’s Business Call to Action, which is intended to support businesses actively fighting poverty.

The plant will use eco-friendly dye, and workers will both dye and sew household goods. Plans to plant the natural dye indigo outside of the factory are also in the works, according to the release, which could generate an additional 50 jobs.
