Textile Exchange

Textile Exchange, founded in 2002, is a global non-profit organization that works closely with all sectors of the textile supply chain. It aims to inspire and equip people to accelerate sustainable practices and find the best ways to minimize and, even reverse, the negative impacts on water, soil, air, animals and the human population created by this US$ 1.7 trillion industry.

The organisation accomplishes this by providing the knowledge and tools for the industry to help make significant improvements in three core areas: fibre and materials, integrity and standards, and supply chain.

Last week, the organisation announced the release of the Responsible Wool Standard that aims to provide the industry with the tool to recognize the best practices of farmers around the globe and provide a robust chain of custody system from farm to final product. Fore more details, click here.
