ISTANBUL — The conservation of endangered forests is becoming a pressing issue as designers turn increasingly to wood pulp-based fibers, according to experts who tackled the issue at the Textile Exchange’s annual sustainability conference here last month.
Amanda Carr, campaign director at Canopy, a not-for-profit conservation organization that is working to convince companies to develop policies that serve the environment, said, “At least half of the brands we approached did not have any idea that their fabric could be forest-based.”
