We feel for the people of Houston, Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands who had their lives devastated by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.....they have to replace everything.

So, what if....what if they replaced their clothing with sustainably-produced clothing? Imagine the statement that would make....

What's involved in manufacturing sustainably-produced clothing? Listen to Christopher Chappell, Director of eCommerce and Marketing at Ramblers Way (and the son of Tom Chappell of Tom's of Maine toothpaste fame) and hear how they're manufacturing organic wool clothing that is made in the U.S.A. too.

You'll hear:

Certifications to look for - and those that are yet needed

What it takes to make organic clothing.

Which dyes are organic and water-friendly which are not.

What you can do as a consumer to wear your eco-values.

Pros and cons of manufacturing in the U.S.A.

You'll never look at your shirts, sweaters, pants and blazers the same again!

Let us know what YOU think clothing manufacturers and retailers should do to be more eco-friendly.
