Session 3 | Sustainable Shoe Materials, Certifications, and Standards
With a range of new materials coming out, how do you really know which ones are sustainable and which ones are not? What are the new materials that work for footwear, and who can I buy them from? What groups and standards should I know about so I can make more informed decisions when it comes to design, development, and production using these materials? What percent recycled, bio, or other are standard? Yes, we cover all this and more.
Session 3 focus:
New types of Environmentally Preferred Materials (EPM)
What the industry standards are for EPMs
What groups or bodies oversee recycled content, bio content, etc.
What is an LCA?
Formulating a real strategy to transform your lines with EPMs
