Eco-textile labelling guide goes online

Written by Haydn Davis

{besps}ss/ecolabels{/besps}PONTEFRACT - MCL Global has launched an online version of the industry leading Ecotextile Labelling Guide, the essential tool for manufacturers, retailers and brands looking to produce, source and sell environmentally friendly clothing and textiles.

First launched in 2008, followed by a second edition in 2010, the Ecotextile Labelling Guide is a comprehensive easy-to-read handbook designed for manufacturers, retailers and buyers who want to source or produce clothing that has a minimal impact on the environment and that is made in a socially responsible manner. The guide lists all the labels and environmental standards relevant to the global textile and clothing supply chain.

Supplementing this, is the new dynamic and interactive online guide offering incisive snapshots and links to the detailed criteria, tables and tool tips of more than 60 labels and standards. As well as covering raw materials such as organic cotton, recycled polyester and biopolymers, also offers up to the minute information on social criteria, such as Fairtrade, Fair labour, SA8000 etc., and textile processing standards such as bluesign, EU Eco Flower and Oeko-Tex 1000.

Furthermore, as well as management tools and metrics, new additions to the online version include information on water standards, such as Proposition 65 and the World Water Assessment Programme; energy use, including LEED and Superior Energy Performance; and even sections on disposal and biodegradability.

While MCL Global will now publish the printed copy of the guide on an annual basis, will be updated by a team of expert journalists in real time, as soon as they learn about new changes.

The sign up cost is just £49 which gives you one year’s full unlimited access to the web-site. PLUS MCL Global will also despatch the latest version of the printed Eco-Textile Labelling booklet in the post to you today.
