Cradle-to-Grave Wool LCA Published
Wrapping up seven years of work, the first full wool life cycle assessment was published in May. The research was led by Dr Stephen Wiedemann, Chair of our SPWG's LCA Technical Advisory Group.
Chief among the findings is the importance of how many times a garment is worn, and how long it is kept "in use." When we wear our clothes more often and use them for longer, we lessen the overall impact of having made them. It's the same rationale as the one against single-use plastics.
Learn more about the findings, and download the study, on iwto.org/first-full-wool-lca/.
