Sustainable clothing unit set up in Liberia
Mar '10
A US based organization, dedicated to eradicating extreme poverty in Africa, has set up a clothing factory in Liberia, a country located on the western coast of the African continent, to manufacture organic-cotton garments.

Sustainable Global Sourcing, a new San Francisco based organization along with purchasing organic cotton, has also cultivated its own organic cotton and set up yarn spinning and garment manufacturing units in the country.

In order to boost and develop the local economies, it has also set up electric generators which run on the locally produced palm-oil and has also planned to plant its own organic cotton in at least 1,000 acres within the next five years.

Prana, the California based yoga-clothing retailer has already signed up at its first client and Sustainable Global Sourcing is hopeful that other similar brands will also opt for its sustainable garments in the near future.

The biggest advantage of this facility is that a retailer is able to source its requirements of eco-friendly apparels from under one roof, rather than sourcing fabric from one country and getting it stitched in another country, making the whole process tricky.
