Textile manufacturers looking to get in on the green move-ment by marketing their products as environmentally friendly can expect to face increasing government scrutiny and a bevy of lawyers sharpening their knives in anticipation of legal action.
When it comes to claiming environmental advantages, the Federal Trade Commission’s consumer protection division and the legal community have focused largely on consumer products such as food and cleaning products. That focus is now shifting down the supply chain to the textiles level at a time when more and more textile producers are introducing eco-products.
