Sustainability

True Textiles has been an environmental sustainability pioneer since long before it became popular in corporate circles. When we started introducing sustainability measures, it wasn't because we thought they would be good for marketing, or because our competitors were doing it. It was because we felt it was the right thing to do. And we still feel that way today.
