The CALIMERO General Meeting was an important reminder of the significance of collaboration and teamwork in building a successful global community.

Therefore, the consorcium had the oportunitty to visit the facilities of EREKS, where they were shown the production process for creating sustainable jeans with desired colors, rips, and other effects. EREKS is a company that prides itself on its commitment to sustainability, and this was reflected in the production process that was demostrated to the partners. 

Sustainability is a critial issue in the textile industry, and EREKS is at the forefront of efforts to reduce the environmental impact of clothing production. They use natural dyes, recycled materials, and energy-efficent manufacturing processes to create high-quality jeans that are not only fashionable but also environmentally responsable. Overall, the visit to EREKS was an eye-opening experience for the consortium, and it highlited the importance of sustainability in the textile industry. It also showcased the impressive work that companies like EREKS are doing to address this issue and create a more sustainable future for the industry.
