From organic cotton to recycled zippers many clothing brands are trying to establish their bona fides with consumers who care about the health of their bodies and the planet. In a world of increasing transparency about environmental and labor practices consumers expect to know more about the clothes they wear. What lies ahead for product labeling and making the $200 billion US clothing industry more sustainable? Are efforts encouraging consumers to wash their clothes less a smart move or a retailer dodge? Do U.S. brands really monitor their factories in China? Join us for a conversation with leaders in the effort to run sustainable companies that make durable and responsible products.
