The Global Organic Textile Standard International Working Group launched a 4.0 version of the worldwide recognized standard for the processing of textiles made from certified organic natural fibers, which, among its new provisions, calls for bans on virgin polyester and angora.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
