Our Sustainability Plan:
Keeping Our Community Clean.
Wastewater Treatment Plant
Straus Knitting Mills is located in a beautiful valley through which the St. Croix River flows. Everyone who works and lives in this area is truly blessed to have the opportunity to enjoy our natural treasures. We have lovely and peaceful parks and forests that hold an abundance of wildlife. People in our small community are very friendly; if you do not know a person, you are guaranteed to know someone who does. You will be friends with your doctor, postmaster, police chief, and neighbors; the sense of community and the ties that bind are very strong.
We believe that we live in a special place, and we have taken extra measures to maintain the pristine beauty of the area. While some textile manufacturers use caustic chemicals in their process and simply discharge their waste water byproduct to the local treatment plant, we have installed our own waste water treatment plant. Our process water leaves this operation as clear as when it came in, protects our environment and the place we live.
