Have you heard... O Ecotextiles

Did you know that, "the textile industry, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, is the 5th largest contributor to CO2 emissions in the United States, after primary metals, nonmetallic mineral products, petroleum and chemicals." I just learned this reading the O Ecotextiles blog.

I was just browsing through all the different people that have joined our community online and I came across Leigh Anne Van Dusen. Leigh and her sister Patty started O Ecotextiles, an eco-textile company in 2004. The company is based in Seattle. Their mission is, "to change the way textiles are made by proving that it's possible to produce luxurious, sensuous fabrics in ways that are non-toxic, ethical and sustainable." I definitely recommend you check out their website. There is also some great information in the O Ecotextiles blog.
