Material Snapshots

These guides are designed for the reader to understand why the choice to use certain materials makes a difference in the textile, apparel, & footwear industry. That choice could result in positive or negative impacts depending on the material and supply chain details. These guides provide a concise look at the agricultural, social, and processing differences that make material sustainability profiles different. This snapshot also provides information on material properties, certifications, and sourcing information since sustainability is only one of the many reasons why a particular material is chosen.
