The lingerie and activewear markets are on the right path. Still, the textile industry continues to be singled out, not just for its impact on the environment and excessive use of dangerous, though regulated, chemical products, but also for the massive consumption of over 80 billion garments each year throughout the world, which participates in the accumulation of over 13 million tons of textile waste. How can the lingerie, swimwear, and activewear markets examine the sustainability of their products? What must be done to offer consumers positive values? Is it possible to intelligently reflect on, design, produce, and use in a different way? Several sustainable development specialists will debate with exhibitors during this conference, which will take place on Monday, July 9th at 11 a.m.
