Where to Source Next-Gen Fabrics
Next-generation solutions use waste materials to create low-carbon alternatives to virgin raw materials, such as tree fibre from Endangered Forests and synthetics made from non-renewable, polluting sources. This not only eases the burden on natural raw materials but also helps stabilise our climate and preserves biodiversity.
In this video, you'll learn:
- The environmental benefits of next-gen textiles.
- Where to source next-gen fibres - including producers with contact information.

Based on the idea that trees are ‘renewable’ and ‘carbon neutral’, unfortunately, one of the most pervasive myths today suggests that logging more trees to produce textiles is the answer to our sustainable sourcing needs. Get the low-down on man-made cellulosic fibres and why sourcing materials from trees might not be as sustainable as it sounds.
