John Flynn, vice president of design and development for organic apparel manufacturing heavyweight Greensource Organic Clothing Co., will address how to put both value and values in one's supply chain at the Organic Exchange Sustainable Textiles Conference October 28 in New York City. Also speaking on the panel are representatives from C&A, Anvil Knitwear, and Loomstate.

Greensource is the world's eighth largest user of organic cotton and its mills are certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which prohibits the use of toxic inputs during the processing stages. In addition, the mills are involved in numerous other social and environmental initiatives including solar-based lighting, stringent waste-water treatment practices, support of local schools and hospitals, and their own organic cotton production.

Greensource prides itself on manufacturing premium organic apparel in Pakistan, India, and Nicaragua at affordable prices, while being fair to workers and the environment. It enjoys strong sales of organic cotton knit and denim apparel sold mostly at big box stores such as Kohl's, Sam's Club, and Walmart, providing consumers with premium fashion at affordable prices.

Brady Hill, vice president of marketing, and Scott LeMaster, vice president of sales, will also be attending the conference. Greensource is a proud sponsor of the event.

Greensource Organic Clothing Company, a trend-forward apparel design and manufacturing company based in Seattle, WA, is one of the nation's largest suppliers of private-label and branded apparel made with organic cotton. It is also a large supplier of certified organic cotton blank T-shirts for the men's, women's, and children's markets.
