Issue Week 49-2016
Summary of news published since Week 48-2016
TOGETHER with fibre producer Lenzing, yarn supplier RadiciGroup have both long been at the forefront of the textile industry’s drive for greater sustainability. This week both made announcements that confirmed their leadership in that field. As yet, only a minority of consumers apply environmental criteria when buying textile products but their number is growing in step with awareness of the importance of the health of our planet. When such awareness is globally widespread, as it is certain to become, those companies and brands that were early supporters of the concept will reap the full benefits of their commitment. But there is still time for laggards to adopt the policies of the leaders and thus to safeguard the wellbeing of future generations.
