and finish it with a good result. many armenian businesses would like to get their foot in the door of european markets but before that can happen they need to improve production standards and boost their environmental credentials. industry accounts for just 25 percent of armenia's g.d.p. today noon or hurt union is visiting a battery factory on the outskirts of yerevan by products of the production process itself you're a cassadine lead used to end up in the factories wastewater that the company has now found a cleaner solution not many people are necessarily analyzing or viewing the process because business person looks on his benefits how here as the business and it's not necessary that you know almost all the details on the impact on the environment. the car batteries are cooled before they're charged the factory now uses technology

7:52 pm
get rich doing it i mean how do you guys come by. the sheep are eventually sold for their meat but in this apologies also pay shepherds to have their flocks graze on public land but will has become a losing business these days sales don't even cover the costs of having the sheep sheared so that some of you before merino wool. i have merino sheep because they still have the best quality i get over a euro per kilo. colleagues of mine who have other breeds get a lot less they get $45.00 to $0.65 per kilo. if some of them don't sell it anymore choosing to burn the world or toss it instead . they're going to. his wool goes to china where it's processed and ends up in bedding upholstery carpets and other textile products some

7:55 pm
each month compared to the $220.00 tons it gets from new zealand wool from down under is pure and wool from other places it's softer and cheaper too because it's produced very efficiently the vatican felt spinning wheel wants to promote local wool but has no illusions about the future of wool from germany always harder sadly consumers today are not willing to pay higher prices at the retail level they're more interested in getting new products faster they want to see trends and changes in fashion so the cost has to be low it would be nice if people could change their priorities and still. get a couple remains enthusiastic about her wool in fabric it may be expensive but demand from high quality sustainable fashion is growing her mission is to eventually produce quantities approaching 10000 metres of her muzzle tweet. while human beings i'm not islands. we thrive on supporting and caring for each
