NEW YORK — Speakers at The Green Event here last week encouraged sourcing executives to view lowering the environmental impact of their businesses as an imperative for the survival of their jobs and the planet.
The two-day conference and exposition held Thursday and Friday at the Millennium Broadway Hotel featured speakers from textile and apparel manufacturers and retailers. Andrew Winston, founder of Winston Eco-Strategies and co-author of “Green to Gold,” opened the conference by outlining some of the issues fueling the environmental movement. Chief among those issues is global warming.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
