Weaving Sustainability into the Fabric of the Apparel Industry

Sustainability is one big, baggy term for all sorts of practices and strategies. Generally, it stands for progressive efforts that include environmental, financial, and resource management as well as overall business model planning, to name just a few.

In a blog on Sourcing Journal, Tara Donaldson reports on seven trends in the apparel industry, as presented at the Textile Exchange Sustainability Conference, held last month in Washington, D.C. The points range from connecting with the SDGs to growth in sustainable fabrics, from circularity to climate actions, from new technology to water stewardship and sustainable investment.
