The Blue Angel at Heimtextil

 Der Blaue Engel informierte auf der Heimtextil Besucher*innen und Hersteller*innen über ökologische Aspekte in der Textilherstellung.
At Heimtextil, the Blue Angel informed visitors and manufacturers about environmental aspects within textile manufacturing.

The focus mainly lay on environmental aspects as well as the working conditions in manufacturing. The Blue Angel certifies textiles that fulfil high environmental standards while also taking production conditions into consideration. The ecolabel was once again represented at the trade fair this year: in their talks and discussion rounds, Dr. Kristin Stechemesser and Brigitte Zietlow from the German Environment Agency provided insights into the opportunities offered by the circular economy and circularity for the textiles industry and legal standards that apply to ecodesign requirements.
