What you'll learn in this business training:

The journey from raw material through processing, dyeing, and finishing is complex. Sourcing raw materials, chemicals used in processing, energy and water use, and finishing products and processes are just some of the considerations in developing sustainable textiles. 

This course will cover all the components and considerations of sustainable materials for fashion. It will also cover the eco labels that pertain to materials in the United States and, as applicable, worldwide markets, and teach you how to evaluate these labels’ pros and cons. We will also touch on eco labels that apply to the packaging and labeling necessary for the retail environment.
