American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) has won yet another Tabbie award, this time for an in-depth feature article on environmental issues titled “Staying Alive: Making Textiles Sustainable.”  The article was published in the November/December 2011 issue of AATCC Review, the journal of AATCC, and was written by the association’s Publications and Membership Director, Maria Thiry. 

The annual Tabbie Awards are sponsored by Trade Association Business Publications International (TABPI). Nearly 500 editorial and design entries from around the globe were entered in the 2012 contest.
 
“Staying Alive: Making Textiles Sustainable,” won an Honorable Mention and represents Thiry’s ninth writing award won while working  for AATCC. 
 
Jack Daniels, AATCC Executive Vice President, stated of this latest award, “I am truly gratified that we have such dedicated and talented employees as Maria Thiry. This award further enhances the global image of AATCC, which itself owes a great vote of thanks to all of our members and volunteers, working tireless hours to promote the mission and vision of our Association. Through the collective work of our dedicated members and staff, AATCC has enjoyed 91 years of developing and promoting cutting edge science and technology, within the textile and related industries.” The 2012 Tabbie is AATCC’s 14th award for an article published in the association’s journal or newsletter.
 
“I am pleased to have won another award for AATCC Review & the Association,” said Maria Thiry. “Sustainability is a very important issue for the entire industry and of vital interest to all of our members and readers.” Thiry added that the people she interviewed receive much of the credit. “I was grateful for their time and generous help with this article,” she said. “Sustainability is a complex and thorny issue that challenges the entire industry, but one that will continue to demand attention.”
