Stefan Bergill of Econscious sustainable apparel company presented to representatives from regulatory, association, and non-profit institutions at the film premiere of “Global Organic Textile Standard-Ecology and Social Responsibility” hosted by the International Working Group (IWG) in Washington, DC. The film highlights the huge environmental impact of conventional textile production and how companies getting certified to the stringent standard can reduce this impact while also addressing important social concerns.

The premiere also served as an introduction to the IWG's newly appointed Regional Representatives who will drive an increase in the worldwide awareness of and certification to GOTS. Thus far, the IWG has appointed Representatives in U.S./Canada (Sandra Marquardt), Great Britain (Christopher Stopes), Japan (Yoshiko Ikoma), and Denmark (Elisabeth Tosti). Appointments in the German speaking countries and elsewhere will be made over the next year.

The event commemorated the two-year anniversary of the release of the GOTS logo in 2008, which manufacturers around the world have started to add to the labels of products certified to the standard.

The Econscious brand provides both the fashion and promotional markets with a comprehensive line of sustainable tees, hoodies, hats and bags, all made from certified organic cotton, recycled post-consumer polyester and other innovative, earth-conscious materials.
