Sustainability Issues in Textiles and Apparel: What Consumers Can Do
Sustainability is the biggest issue facing the textile and apparel supply chain since the industrial revolution. This requires an understanding of rapidly changing technology, the global supply chain, and LCA (Life Cycle Analysis), as well as consumer behavior. This webinar is packed with tips on purchasing and laundering clothes as well as how to care for and dispose of them...and save money too! The content is ideal for college courses but also will help anyone become a very well-informed consumer.
Presenter: Kaye Crippen, PhD, former research chemist at DuPont, now teaches textile and apparel courses at The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.
