Blog: A RITE good conference
Joe Ayling | 6 October 2010
I am travelling into London this morning for the annual RITE Group conference in Westminster.
RITE, which stands for Reducing the Impact of Textiles on the Environment, has done a sterling job in raising the green agenda for a number of years now.
Speakers from Marks and Spencer, DuPont, Huntsman and Defra will take to the stage for this year's event, called 'Shaping Tomorrow's Industry'.
It also marks the first year of RITE's tie-up with the Ethical Fashion Forum, creating two seperate streams.
Making a distinction between environmental sustainability and ethical fashion can only help to steer discussions in a focused way.
News and insights from today's sessions will follow on just-style, and it will be a pleasure to meet up with any readers at today's conference.
