Green Efforts Grow at Heimtextil
November 8, 2011,
FRANKFURT, Germany-Sustainability will remain an important issue at Heimtextil 2012 and will be supported by a lecture series and an updated Green Directory.
"Our goal is to systematically focus greater attention on sustainable products at our international textiles fairs, as we observe ongoing strong interest in the ecological segment," said Olaf Schmidt, vice president textiles and textile technologies at Messe Frankfurt, which owns and operates Heimtextil.
In addition, the Green Directory for 2012 will give an overview of exhibitors and products "with outstanding environmental quality or sustainable manufacture," according to Messe Frankfurt, and those listed in the directory will display a special sign on their stand during the show.
