Oeko-Tex and Target to discuss chemical compliance

Target recently announced a US$ 5 million investment to support green chemistry development. Home & Textiles Today will host a breakfast seminar featuring spokespeople from Oeko-Tex and Target who will address green chemical management in home textile production. The seminar will be held on 27 March in New York.

Home & Textiles Today presents this critical seminar, which is open to anyone interested in learning more about complying with textile chemicals management goals. The event will feature Target’s Kirk Smithwick, a principle product engineer who has worked on Target’s bedding, outdoor living textiles, and sustainability initiatives and Ben Mead, a green chemistry expert, who represents Oeko-Tex in North America. At the event they will discuss proactive textile chemicals management programmes.

Investment

Target recently announced a US$ 5 million investment to support green chemistry development. Target also announced a new policy for suppliers to eradicate harmful chemicals in textiles, personal care, and beauty products.

The company says it has committed to working with supply chain partners like Oeko-Tex to implement policies, practices, and tools that facilitate the responsible management of textile chemicals.

Oeko-Tex has issued more than 160,000 certificates globally and millions of consumers around the world look for Oeko-Tex labels before making buying decisions.
