The 9th Annual Summit of Planet Textiles 2018 will take place on May 22, 2018 at Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre, Canada. Scaling up sustainable innovation and the growing problem of textile microfibre pollution will be tackled by experts at this year’s Planet Textiles 2018 in Vancouver, Canada. An expected 400 delegates will also hear from experts in special breakout sessions about raising finance, deforestation and raw material selection, as well as chemical management in relation to water use and pollution.
Hosted in the same venue as the Sustainable Apparel Coalition annual member meeting, Planet Textiles offers unrivalled networking opportunities and it’s a date on the calendar that environmental professionals in the fashion industry cannot afford to miss. We’d love you to join in the conversation!
