Our two-hour Water in the Fashion Supply Chain
workshop this Wednesday, 22nd November will bring together the Council of Textile and Fashion
, AWS Water Stewardship and the Better Cotton Initiative. Managing water through the supply chain is a major challenge. Growing cotton is a thirsty business while dyeing and printing is a major polluter. While some global brands have been leading the charge on this for a decade, the Australian industry has a great opportunity to progress quickly and show leadership though this developing collaboration supported by the Australian Government.
