Chemical Update

Oeko-Tex is rolling out a new process (for a price) to rate chemical formulations in textiles.  Since textiles touch you and your loved ones, be it clothing, shoes, rugs, sheets… you may want to pay attention. Ask yourself do you now what chemicals do your textiles contain, do they harm or help.

Oeko-Tex have webinars (free) and information on their Standard 101 and the newer Eco Passport.  One does not need to be chemist to comprehend the value of their general briefs .

See what you think. Keep in mind there are other initiatives to consider.
