Fashion companies go sustainable
Li Lianfeng's textile mill in Guangzhou produces more than 7,000 meters of denim, but only 5 percent of his mill's output uses natural indigo dye rather than synthetics. The underlying reason is cost.
Fashion industry is moving at a snail's pace into sustainability but faces challenges of costly conversion. Like Li Lianfeng, Levi's, Gucci and H&M are profit driven. But clearly, steps forward have been taken.
