Lord Melchett to speak at RITE Group conference

Written by Haydn Davis

altBRISTOL - Lord Peter Melchett, Policy Director at the Soil Association, is the latest high profile speaker to be announced for the Rite Group Conference which takes place in London on 10 October.

During his presentation, Lord Melchett will be providing details of the Soil Association’s forthcoming ‘Have you Cottoned on Yet?’ campaign. The campaign, which launches in October, will gather evidence which shows that organic cotton is the long-term goal for brands wanting to offer sustainable textiles by setting out five unique benefits of organic. The campaign will also be exploring the so-called 'dangers' of GM cotton, and the proliferation of lower-level entry point schemes.

Joining Lord Melchett at the Rite Group conference will be a host of other notable industry names including Baroness Lola Young OBE, Mike Barry, Head of Sustainable Business, Marks & Spencer, Pavel Misiga, Sustainable Consumption, European Commission, Mark Held, Secretary General, European Outdoor Group, Mike Shcragger, Swedish Fashion Academy, Cyndi Rhodes, CEO Worn Again and British TV presenter and Observer journalist Lucy Siegle.
