Three quarters of all consumers state that they believe sustainable fashion is important. Quite rightly, they don’t want to wear a T-shirt that has been produced by people working 16-hour shifts and earning a pittance. Nor do they want a product that has been dyed with toxic chemicals.

That is why many companies are now demonstrating that sustainable fashion is possible! The Green Button is our label of responsibility. It offers guidance on buying sustainably manufactured textiles.

Join us as we certify products manufactured by companies that already produce environmentally and socially sustainable textiles and present the new Green Button textile label to the public.
