Dina Dunn, the Oeko-Tex spokesperson on the Green Stamps panel, noted, “Interest in sustainable and environmental textiles is at an all time high with consumers and retailers. However, textile products executives need to thoroughly understand the many options available in today’s global market so they can make the most effective choices for their company and their customers.”
Oeko-Tex will also sponsor a cocktail reception on Sept. 18; Oeko-Tex executives from the United States and Europe will be on hand.
