Sustainable Certifications and Resources

As promised, a listing of just some of the many certifications, networks and resources there are for fabrics and clothing under the general umbrella of “Sustainable”.  Please remember, creating clothing takes many steps.  Many of these organizations only address one or a few areas within the whole process.  Although we have worked with, believe in, and encourage many of these organizations, Draper Knitting has no stake in their success nor information.  Go forth and educate yourselves!
