Bard MBA to Host Live Podcast - 98% of All Clothes Are Made Overseas
ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y., February 3, 2016 /3BL Media/ - The Bard MBA in Sustainability will host a live discussion, "Certifying Sustainability and Transparency in Local Economies" with Eric Henry, President of TS Designs, on the dial-in podcast, Sustainable Business Fridays, Friday, February 5th, at 12pm EST.
"98% of all clothing is made overseas," says Eric Henry, President of TS Designs. TS offers the most sustainable t-shirts and printing options on the planet, made in North Carolina. They follow a “dirt to shirt” philosophy, using organic cotton, recycled materials, and water-based inks. They also use on-site solar, wind, and compost energy to power much of their facilities.
Despite the fact that Eric grew up in a large city, he has had a heart for farming and gardening since he was a child. He started out thinking he would study agriculture – but his journey led him to cotton, shirts and sustainability. "Creating profitable, scalable businesses that respect all stake-holders is at the core of the Bard MBA's mission and we look forward to hearing about the TS Designs production philosophy." Eban Goodstein, Director of the Bard MBA in Sustainability.
