Recycled wool and the outdoor sector21 July 2017
More wool is now being used in our sector, and this new (to us) material, brings with it fresh and novel opportunities for innovation.
The EOG has announced the details of two events that will launch a programme of sustainability webinars, starting in the last week of May.
The first, on Tuesday 26th May, will focus on the alignment of brands’ own restricted substances lists with REACH’s substances of concern evidence. The second webinar, on Tuesday 30th June, will cover the continual recycling of cotton/polyester textiles. Both events will feature expert speakers and offer the opportunity for questions and discussion around internationally important subjects.
Pamela Ravasio, EOG CSR & sustainability manager, comments:
“I am delighted that we are now able to start rolling out the EOG sustainability webinars. We have worked hard to develop a programme that will cover a range of topical and very relevant issues for businesses operating in the outdoor sector. This is part of our wider sustainability work, which has recently included an expansion to the public resources section of the EOG website, with more developments in the pipeline. All of this is designed to make sure that outdoor businesses have the latest information and insights about these important subjects, and to encourage debate and discussion. The webinars will take place as we lead up to OutDoor in July, where once again there will be a lot of focus on sustainability.”
